High-Tech In Brownsville
By Dylan Johnson, KCP
In Brownsville’s Howard Houses on Friday afternoon, Central Brooklyn State Senator Jesse Hamilton brought together community leaders, elected officials, students, teachers and principals to announce for a conference on The Campus, the country’s first technology and wellness hub located in a public housing project. The Campus, spearheaded by the senator, is an initiative designed to create computer literacy for students age 12-18 as well as provide a center for the students’ well-being and health.
“I know firsthand some of the challenges these young people are facing because I grew up in public housing in New York and will always be a champion for the residents of NYCHA. Their experience is my experience. It is incumbent upon me to pass that focus on education and wellness on to the children of all the neighborhoods I represent – give them the opportunities, resources and support that every child in New York deserves,” said Hamilton.
