Connecting people to a world of opportunity
Tech Goes Home empowers communities to access and use digital tools to overcome barriers and advance lives. Simply put, we bring computers, Internet, and training to those without so students can do homework, adults can find jobs and manage finances, and seniors can connect with loved ones.

School & Community

Local micro entrepreneurs gain digital tools to strengthen their businesses and, in turn, the local economy. The curriculum focuses on leveraging city resources, managing finances, developing an effective web presence, accepting credit card payments, and more. Upon program completion, participants can purchase a new device for $50.
Young children and their caregivers learn to use mobile apps for early language, literacy, and STEAM skill-building. Families practice early learning strategies and discuss challenges and opportunities in parenting with technology. At the end of the 15 hour course each family can get a new iPad loaded with educational apps, all for $50.
About Tech Goes Home
Who We Are
Tech Goes Home (TGH), founded in 2000, is a national award-winning nonprofit empowering communities to access and use digital tools to overcome barriers and advance lives. TGH prioritizes low-income and underserved populations, including people from challenged neighborhoods, those without technology at home, the unemployed and underemployed, people who do not speak English, and individuals with disabilities.
Access to technology is something many take for granted. However, there is a great inequity between those who can afford this access and those who cannot. Tech Goes Home is closing this gap here in Boston and beyond by providing training and low-cost computers to our residents most-in-need. I’m proud that Tech Goes Home is helping our city lead the way toward a goal of making technology useable and available for all our residents.

"The best part is having more time with my son. He is teaching me more than I expected, we are doing homework together."
"The class bonded. If one person didn't know how to do something, we did a sharing experience... It's empowered me."
