HP and Magic Johnson Foundation team upTraining opportunities
"In today's world, a lack of knowledge and understanding of technology puts an individual at a distinct disadvantage," said Earvin "Magic" Johnson, founder of the Magic Johnson Foundation. "Many of us use technology daily in our homes, our schools and our businesses. Yet for residents in underserved communities, access to technology is not a given. This partnership with HP enables residents of the community to have access and training opportunities that are not otherwise available."

Magic Johnson/HP Inventor Center at Kingsley House
Kingsley House is a New Orleans-based, nationally accredited social service agency with a mission of educating children, strengthening families and building community. The Magic Johnson/HP Inventor Center at Kingsley House will provide the people of New Orleans with a powerful lineup of HP commercial and consumer products ranging from PCs to the latest in digital imaging technology. Kingsley House will operate the new Magic Johnson/HP Inventor Center to ensure sustainability of the technology programs well into the future. HP's investment in the centers totals $1.4 million over three years.

To develop computer skills
"The new Inventor Center will offer residents access to needed resources that will allow them to develop computer skills necessary in a technologically driven world," said New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin. "We thank HP, the Magic Johnson Foundation and the other organizations that collaborated to bring the Inventor Center to the community of New Orleans."

HP makes technology accessible to everyone
The HP technology deployed in the Inventor Center, valued at more than $80,000, includes servers, notebook and desktop PCs, flat panel monitors, digital cameras, photo printers, and all-in-one fax, scanner and printer units. "HP is committed to closing the gap between technology-excluded and technology-empowered communities by making technology accessible to everyone," said Neal Wasemiller, senior enterprise manager, State and Local Government, HP. "HP's collaboration with the Magic Johnson Foundation provides people in underserved communities with technology and skills training needed to increase their access to educational and economic opportunities."

Technology education for children ages 2 to 18
