Computer Training and Refurbishing

Last year, over 1000 adults received computer literacy training at PRC. 

Computers

 

The PRC Computer Access and Training Program provides free classes in computer skills and software, including Intro to Computers, Windows Fundamentals, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. 
 
As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, PRC takes donated computers and refurbishes them for distribution to people who need a home computer.

The Dr. Fix-It program provides free repairs on home computers for PRC clients.

Eligibility

PRC's computer classes and public computers are open to DuPage adults. PRC clients who are participating in a basic computer class are eligible to receive a free refurbished computer. Computer repairs are also free of charge for one computer per PRC client household.

To use the computer lab, take a computer class or receive a computer, you will first need to register as a PRC client.
