Jan Morgan’s curiosity about computers and the Internet has led her to new opportunities she did not imagine. Jan is a single parent who lives in the Lakeside apartments, a residence subsidized by the Housing Authority of the City of Austin. She is also a proud graduate of AFN’s Tech-Starters I and Tech-Starters II, six-week classes sponsored by Austin Pathways. She started the program with little computer skills and attended 36 different training sessions. She successfully finished the classes with 280 new computer skills!
While attending the program, Jan was the Vice President of the Lakeside Resident Council and used her new skills to create a Power Point presentation for a council meeting. Jan also learned how to create a personal website after attending the Tech Starter II class. She told an AFN trainer how excited she was to learn and share the computer lessons with her kids when she got home. Jan helps AFN’s outreach efforts by promoting the Tech Starter II program to other residents from different Housing complexes.
