Transforming lives through digital literacy.

Our vision for success is a world where all people understand the value of the internet and have the digital skills and access needed to accomplish goals and improve the quality of their lives. We do this by partnering with nonprofit and social service agencies working closely with people who need help getting online and gaining the digital skill needed to reach their goals.

Here are some numbers representing the impact we made in 2020:

Community Tech Network meets and helps people in the communities where they live.

By connecting local community members with resources and education, we make a profound and measurable difference in people’s lives. We have empowered thousands of low-income residents not only to become digitally literate, but also to give back to their communities as technology advocates, mentors, and trainers.
