Digital Access supports the sharing of information technology resources within communities that have limited access to technology tools and training. This is accomplished through programming that is creative, collaborative, and community-based.
A volunteer organization, we work on behalf of community technology centers (CTCs) to help them provide access and technology literacy programming to low income residents in the Twin Cities area.
As a result of our work in this arena, we initiated C-CAN, The Community Computer Access Network in early 2001.
C-CAN provides support and networking opportunities for those working to help bridge the Digital Divide in the Twin Cities, and received an AmeriCorps grant in 2004 and again in 2007 to support 25 full time AmeriCorps members working to help residents learn to use technology at local non-profit agencies.
