The Magic Johnson Empowerment Center (formerly known as the Magic Johnson/HP Inventor Center) was funded by Mr. Johnson’s foundation. He felt that the solution for bridging the digital divide was by providing free computer access within the community that utilizes Hewlett-Packard’s state-of-the-art equipment, industry standard software and applications.
Also, please take the time to enjoy the “Magic” of Technology inside the EOYDC/ Magic Johnson Empowerment Center Tech Museum, and viewing some digital stories by the MJ Empowerment Center’s users.

Periodically the afternoon session is devoted to Technical Computer Skills.

Open Enrollment (Some 10 week definitive start/stop courses will be offered.) This class is aimed at the computer need of students ages 8-18.

We also provide general computer access services to all EOYDC participants already knowledgeable in the use of computers, or just want to learn about a particular software. (click here for flyer)
