Neighborhood Networks

Neighborhood Networks ClassThe CMHA Neighborhood Network (NN) provides the tools and solutions that aid in increasing awareness and knowledge base of residents in computer technology. The centers are open to any resident with the desire to learn and gain computer skills to seek employment, job readiness training, entrepreneurship training, self-directed job searches, as well as seniors who need additional socialization opportunities and youth who will be exposed to careers in the growing computer technology field. Our residents are the building blocks of our community. It is this belief that drives NN to strengthen communities, one neighbor at a time.

We offer classes in:

  • Computer Basics 1 & 2
  • Job Skills Training/Employment
  • Resume Building
  • Workshops (e.g. Cleveland Saves)
  • GED Mentoring
  • Youth Activities (homework assistance)
  • Senior Services (Internet, email and social activities)
