Computers for Low-Income Kids (CLIK)
Computers for Low-Income Kids or “CLIK” We provide desktop to families in need, and laptops to college-bound low-income students [in 2011 to date, 650 families with 3 users on average per family and 150 laptops].
PCs for Grads
We give PCs to graduates of a range of computer skills training programs for adults offered by several partner nonprofits [in 2011, 525 computer systems].
Computers and Services to Nonprofits
We provide computer systems, computer labs, and services to nonprofits to build their capacity to serve low-income children, youth, and adults, emphasizing nonprofits in Wards 7 and 8 [18 computer labs in 2010-2011, 400 PC systems].
Tech Training and Internships
We train at-risk youth to do our refurbishing, and with our partner Byte Back, provide certification training for adults, followed by hands-on internships [42 interns in 2011].
LLC Incubator Program
We have begun small pilot program designed to spin off our former computer techs and interns into businesses of their own. [2 participants in 2011]
For modest fees, we repair our PCs and those from the community not from us. If we can’t repair a computer, we replace it. We also provide low-cost upgrades.
