Working with CINCO in Highland Park
The Center to Increase Community Organization (CINCO) in Highland Park is a technology center that provides free computer classes and job training to the community. During the summer, their website, Nelanet.org, was translated from English to Spanish in order to be more helpful to the community. Also, demography tables and maps were uploaded to site. Community reports were added to the site. One of the largest aspects of Nelanet.org is the Northeast Los Angeles Business Finder (NELABF). This summer the NELABF was updated by adding businesses along N. Figueroa St. from Ave. 50 to Ave. 60. Nelanet.org is now more informative and more accessible to community members.
