Winslow Community Learning Center
The Winslow Learning Center was opened in 2003 and started with 4 used computers. This was a class that was for members of the local community to learn the ways of the computer. Since that date, and large donations from Toyota and S.I.N.E, along with many local institutions, it now is in operation with 18 new Dells that are online through Sit-co in Evansville , via High Speed wireless internet. In addition to the Internet, the center has started a program called JAWS, which is a voice recognition program for the sight impaired. Starting with interest for the local community, we have now expanded to the surround counties for the sight impaired program. The center also places good operating computers in homes that cannot otherwise have this learning tool in their homes. Eight computers are set aside for those still in education in the local community schools, having various Microsoft Office products, allowing them the time to prepare papers for the next day class and print over a networked printer. The center is designed to operate on donations and grants, and has no charges for any services.
