El Batey is a city of Boston Timothy Smith Technology Center and our computers and printers exceed the minimum standards described in the RFP. We have 15 compaq computers with Pentium 4 Processors and 512mg ram and Windows 2000 operating systems and 6 HP computers with Pentium 3 Processors, 128 and Windows 2000.

Focusing specifically on the ways in which the “digital divide” affects the Latino community. Helping the Latino community to bridge the digital divide and become full players in the national economy will have far reaching consequences. As reported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, “by 2025, the United States will have the second largest Latino population in the world. One of every five jobs will be held by Latino workers…If the nation can double the rate of Latinos earning a college degree, it will generate $27 billion more for the U.S. economy every year
