ISSUES: Inner-City Neighborhoods Get Tech Savvy

“Earning while learning” is not something you hear often and it’s certainly not something you hear in inner-city Miami, but this summer EcoTech Visions launches eight digital bootcamps aimed at anyone over 18 in Liberty City, Little Haiti, North Miami and other impoverished areas. The program’s focus is to give them the computer skills needed for a tech career but will residents take advantage of this opportunity?
