Our Programs

Tech Goes Home has programs for families, adults, entrepreneurs, seniors, and more. 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 and lead healthy lives.

School & Community

 

Learners participate in 15 hours of digital skills training conducted by a TGH trained staff member from the community organization or school where the course is held. Learners receive a Chromebook and, if needed, internet access.

Small Business

 

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. Learners receive a Chromebook and, if needed, internet access.

Who We Are

Founded in 2000, Tech Goes Home (TGH) empowers communities to access and use digital tools to overcome barriers and advance lives. Our programs are directed at individuals without technology at home, with a focus on those who are un- or under-employed, are from low-income households, have limited English proficiency, or are living with disabilities.

In the past five years alone, we have graduated 22,000 learners from our programs and distributed 14,500 new computers.

       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.

Take a Look

Listen to what TGH learners and leaders have to say about TGH and how the program has affected their lives.

Mircha

"The best part is having more time with my son. He is teaching me more than I expected, we are doing homework together."

Monica

"He's always able to show me something new I didn't know. This was a great opportunity for [Tequan] to do that."

Lynette

"The class bonded. If one person didn't know how to do something, we did a sharing experience... It's empowered me."
