Get Ahead Through Technology (GATT)

The GATT project would allow OSCAO to utilize the computer skills of its IT professionals in its volunteer pool to help enhance the computer skills of both established members and newcomers including youth. The plan is to use our advanced technology expertise (12 of our volunteers are established IT professionals) and already established computer laboratory stocked with desktops, laptops, Tablets, networked printers, scanners and photocopiers with a fast Internet access in order to train both new immigrants and a not-yet-established visible minorities in the use and mastery of both the Internet and fundamental computer applications.
