With a little help from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, 150 kids and young adults will be taking a technological jump forward.
Youth Advocate Programs Incorporated is receiving one of six capital grants from the CRDA.
The grant will go towards a new state-of-the-art computer lab for at-risk youth in the city to use to get ahead.
"The purpose for this equipment for us is we try to help young people as far as jobs are concerned, because that's what most of them are interested in – is working. And now, mostly the applications are electronic and some of our kids that we work with aren't able to have their own computers at home, they have to go to the libraries or sometimes rely on the schools," says Lamont Fauntleroy, Program Director of Atlantic County Youth Advocate Programs, Inc.
The CRDA gave more than $38,000 towards the program.
