About the Center
Opening in April 2010, the NYUL took over operations of the Verizon Technology Education Center. The Verizon Technology Education Center (VTEC) was built more than ten years ago at a cost of $2M. Located within Verizon it served as a community-based facility for showcasing and educating customers about advanced telecommunications technology and the speed at which this technology was developing. NYUL operates the Technology Learning Center from our main office in Harlem providing free computer access, classes and education to community members. This center is not simply a technology lab but an avenue for community members to improve their skills through guided support.
