Successful collaborations are at the heart of the Tech Goes Home. TGH has partnered with more than 250 schools and local community sites to run digital skills courses across Greater Boston.
Being a Partner
TGH serves as program manager, recruiting and training individuals from the partner organizations to run the Internet and life skills training classes. TGH provides the course model, handpicked curriculum, marketing material, course volunteers, as well as a partially subsidized computer for each participant (participants pay a $50 co-pay). TGH also collects data before, during, and after each course to increase program efficacy. TGH supports trainers throughout the course via class visits, meetings, and email.
The partner organizations provide course trainers, classroom space, and, if possible, computers on which to run the course. The course trainers recruit participants, select curriculum pieces based on the needs of their participants, and schedule and run the training sessions. This localized approach enables participants to develop strong support networks and lasting bonds with trainers and fellow participants.
