Brooklyn could get its own Silicon Valley with the planned launch of a new technology and wellness hub in Brownsville.
State Sen. Jesse Hamilton announced “The Campus” on Friday, a partnership with 30 organizations and agencies to build digital literacy and improve public health in the Brownsville community.
The initiative is expected to kick off this fall with app development workshops at NYCHA’s Howard Houses, technology and coding sessions at two local schools and workforce and wellness education at the Brownsville Library.
“Together we will help thousands of children and families by destruction of the cycle of generational poverty and incarceration in Brownsville,” Hamilton said.
