Digital Access staff, along with volunteers from the community, provide the technical and creative expertise needed to successfully develop and implement technology projects. Community partners provide access to computers, teaching and mentoring staff support, and program participants. This strategy leads to the formation of sustainable, new networks -- based on relationships and resource sharing -- that continue beyond the initial project and have the potential for affecting change in social, economic and political arenas.
Digital Access projects demonstrate how computer and Internet technologies can be relevant and useful tools for self empowerment (learning), economic self sufficiency (e-commerce and access to employment information), and creative expression (desktop and Internet publishing).
All Digital Access projects provide participants with information on how to access free or low cost computers and technology training, and where to find technology resources within neighborhood non-profit organizations and other community institutions such as libraries, schools, churches and parks.
