The GTECH After School Advantage program provides educational opportunities to local children by donating brand new, high-tech computers, printers, software, furniture, and volunteer hours to non-profit organizations that sponsor after-school programs in jurisdictions where GTECH has offices.
Las Serenas Learning Center is the 254th GTECH After School Advantage computer lab that GTECH has built since the global program began in 1999. The GTECH After School Advantage program aims to narrow the "digital divide" between affluent individuals and minorities, low-income households, and single-parent families, to grant more children with access to computers and other educational opportunities.
