Our goal is to help administer an initiative to build 500 high-tech Community Resource Development Centers with leadership training and technical support across America, providing underserved communities with the infrastructure and development of survival skills to become prosperous and remain self-sufficient in the new 21st century economy.
Each center will occupy a new LEED Certified 30,000 sq-ft structure on a five-acre site to serve as the hub for all human and economic development activities under the ‘PROSPER INITIATIVE’. The Community Resource Development Center package will consist of a wide range of integrated products and services which, when combined with a simplified construction process, provide a complete interior solution. We have designed these centers to adapt to change and maximize investment in people, technology and real estate. We are building capacity directly into the major elements that make up this turnkey space, from the floor to the plant cabling to the walls and furniture (and everything in between). It will also add community value measured in terms of infrastructure improvements.
Each Center will offer the following:
- Community Development Administration Offices – equipped with complete Information Technology Management frameworks. These offices will provide support and coordination staffing for community projects run by local partners and organizations.
- Family Health and Wellness Center – used to provide Family Health services and Tele-medicine resources.
- Youth Learning Center – used to provide youth with access to effective educational services and E-Learning opportunities, character development curriculum and trainings, equipped with desktop computers and workstations.
- Community Training Center – used as a conduit for learning with two state-of-the-art classrooms each with “Smartboard” technology for interactive distance learning, video conferencing, and computers, offering 25 to 30 various training programs per month.
- Childcare Development Center – used as a complete facility for up to 90 children or based on the need of the community, serve primarily children aged 0-4.
- Public Space – used as a conduit to allow visitors to research, access programs, and opportunities on four touch screen kiosk units with two 50” plasma screens.
- Commercial Kitchen and Dining Hall – to prepare meals for the day care center, catering services for special events held within the center and hospitality-training program.
- Community Hall – serving as a multi-purpose meeting place for business, private and community groups with audio/visual/digital Cinema capabilities for a variety of educational and entertainment content.
- Small Business Incubator - to foster regional economic development by supporting entrepreneurs, small/disadvantaged businesses, and businesses expanding to the area by providing 10 executive suites with managerial and technical assistance, low office rental rates, and shared access to basic office services and equipment.
