Latinitas will have technology workshops through October and November in an effort to help close the technology access gap among young Latinas.
The organization hopes that by teaching young Latinas, who are usually the early adopters of technology, skills needed for digital media, they will in turn teach their family members how to use digital media software and hardware.
To make it easier for parents to learn, Latinitas will host a special mother-daughter session on photography and web design tomorrow. For only $10, the duo will first go through an intensive photography lesson and will then build their own family/photo website. The workshop will take place tomorrow at the Latinas’ office located at 1107 S. Eighth St.
In addition to this special session, Latinitas, will have free workshops for girls ages 8-14 at various libraries in Austin:
- Oct. 8 – Website Design – Terraza’s Branch of Austin Public Library located at 1105 E. Cesar Chavez St.
- Oct 15 – Spanglish Talkshow – St. John’s branch of Austin Public Library located at 7500 Blessing Ave.
- Nov. 12 – Nature photography – Terraza’s Branch of Austin Public Library located at 1105 E. Cesar Chavez St.
- Nov. 19 – Fashion photography – St. John’s branch of Austin Public Library located at 7500 Blessing Ave.
Latinitas empowers young Latinas through media and technology as well as through school enrichment programs and summer camps to encourage girls to become successful in the future.
