On commemorating the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Community Technology Centers (CTC) with a wreath at the Altar of the Homeland, its director, Isidro Torres, said that during his tenure, the institution has certified nearly three hundred thousand adolescents, young people and seniors in the various training activities it provides.
Torres, in a brief speech, praised the progress achieved by the institution in the three years he has been in charge of the CTCs and said that from these follow the guidelines of President Luis Abinader, who through digital technologies seeks to improve the quality of life of Dominicans, accelerate economic and social recovery, in addition to raising levels of productivity and national competitiveness.
“President Luis Abinader has brought about a new technological revolution, which allows the democratization and access of the population to the Internet in the most remote areas of the country, through the Community Technology Centers, which helps our young people to access a technical career and become entrepreneurs in their respective communities,” he said.
In this regard, Torres mentioned the expansion of educational offerings carried out by the Technological Institute of the Americas (ITLA), the National Institute of Technical Professional Training (Infotep), the Community Technology Centers (CTC), and the 14-24 Opportunity program, among others.
Torres explained that with this type of expansion, what is sought is to achieve greater educational opportunities for students interested in careers related to technology and continuing education.
He said that the correct behavior and management that public servants should have with respect to the resources of the State is the best tribute that can be paid to the Fathers of the Nation.
He affirmed that one goes to the State to serve and to fight so that every day the Dominican people have better living conditions and that the young people reach a more hopeful future, “and this is achieved in great part, by being honest from the simplest position, the direction or the ministry that one directs”.
Torres and other officials, as well as collaborators of the CTC, who laid a wreath at the Altar of the Homeland on Monday, highlighted the importance of the work and training programs that this institution carries out in favor of reducing the digital gap in young people, adolescents and older adults, belonging to communities in vulnerable conditions.
