Microsoft Hits the Road with Hispanic Computer Literacy Campaign

Microsoft has announced the official launch of the Vida Digital Latina campaign to promote computer literacy among Hispanics.

Microsoft has teamed-up with ASPIRA, a national nonprofit organization devoted to the education and leadership development of Latino youth, and Latinos in Information Sciences and Technology Association (LISTA), an organization that seeks to close the digital divide among Latino communities.

The Vida Digital Latina platform was created to further engage and increase technology education among U.S. Latinos—and, of course, to promote Microsoft’s new operating system, Vista.

Classes will be held in these locations on the following dates:

*New York: April 25, Compass Community Center, Bronx, 10:30 a.m.

* Miami: May 14, Jobing.com offices, 8:30 a.m.

* San Francisco: May 20, Hilton San Francisco, 8:30 a.m.
