(New York – February 17, 2012)

A facility run by 'Per Scholas' which services the community with Technology Training whilst at the same time refurbishing computers bringing low-cost IT products to the homes of New Yorkers was visited today by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe and EPA Regional Administrator Judith A. Enck.

The nonprofit organization which was founded in 1995 in the South Bronx, provides job training and collects, refurbishes, redistributes, or recycles computers in the New York City area. The Donated computers and laptops are refurbished at 'Per Scholas' and re-distributed as either donations or as low-cost discounted sales to lower-income communities throughout the USA.

Quoting Deputy Administrator Perciasepe:

“As President Obama has made clear, involving everyone and creating opportunity is the key to an economy that is built to last”

“By refurbishing computers that might otherwise be discarded and training individuals in skills they otherwise might not acquire, Per Scholas has shown that it’s possible to help build a sustainable economy right here in the Bronx.”

'Per Scholas' has opened-up its headquarters to become a technology teaching facility. The centre provides classes and practical tutoring preparing its students for various technology certifications. The vocational training, computer distribution and recycling work together to empower children and help adults build living-wage careers as computer technicians.
