GTECH’s After School Advantage program is a national community investment initiative, which provides non-profit agencies and public schools with state-of-the-art computer labs in states where a GTECH office is located.

The initiative is meant to provide an otherwise unavailable educational experience and bridge the digital divide among at-risk children. GTECH Corporation has been a lottery technology supplier to the California Lottery since 1985 and is a supporter of their efforts to raise $23 billion for students attending California’s public schools.

Executives from GTECH joined local dignitaries including California Assembly member Isadore Hall, III; Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas; Actress and Co-Founder of Amazing Grace Conservatory Wendy Raquel-Robinson; Veteran Actress, Marla Gibbs; Raven Symone’  and other Amazing Grace staff and students to unveil the new computer lab.
