Technology Without Borders
Technology without Borders (TWB) is a committee of the Campus Y dedicated to bridging the digital divide in all its forms, both at home and abroad. This mission is accomplished through digital literacy workshops, tutoring, and providing computer and internet access to families and individuals that could not otherwise afford it.TWB's community impact is currently growing at an unprecedented rate.
While the scope of TWB's work had previously been confined to Abbey Court were residents were provided free wireless internet network and partnering with the Kramden Institute to provide 50 families with school aged children with free computers, we are now moving into four new communities and partnerships. This semester, TWB offered digital literacy workshops/tutoring sessions for the homeless/at-risk population in the area at JobLink on West Franklin Street. We are teaching skills to assist in finding and applying for jobs, communication, and exportable skills that participants can take to employers.
