What is TechComunidad?

TechComunidad brings the power of technology to the doorsteps of the people in a community. This digital technology program is organized in the heart of a low-income neighborhood whose tech knowledge and access to technology is measured to be minimal.

TechComunidad begins with a mobilization day to kick off a free training and access program for the entire family. The kick off day consists of hands-on tech demonstrations and culturally relevant learning opportunities and training for parents and students. TechComunidad is designed to be a starting point for increased tech empowerment for families who need it the most.

 

What are TechComunidad’s Goals?

  • To increase the tech knowledge and empowerment of a community as a whole so as to increase its overall educational attainment and quality of life
  • To give every family in attendance immediate access to technology for the long-term
  • To improve a disadvantaged, low socioeconomic community’s connectivity.

What are TechComunidad’sFeatured Activities?

TechComunidad is a learning experience for parents and students who are less technology literate and who have minimal access to tech service and products. The kick off day’s activities include:

  • Bilingual digital media sessions on video gaming, social media, cell phone and web technologies
  • Hands-on, interactive demonstrations on how technology integrates with daily life
  • Culturally relevant info sessions for parents.
