ABOUT US

Our Mission

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for adult communities being left behind by the digital divide.

Our Vision

We envision inclusive, thriving communities where residents, families and businesses are competent in the use of technology in their personal lives and careers.

Our Values

Above all, we are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in our instructional, recruiting, hiring and governance practices. This commitment drives our mission and these five core values guide all that we do:

Excellence


We provide personal instruction to each of our students as we emphasize attention to detail, persistence and collaboration. This allows us to actively pursue the highest quality of instruction, supportive organizational culture and meaningful personal interaction. We welcome anxiety, frustration, and even tears as a natural part of the learning process. We treat our students like family.




Accountability


• We create educational material that is up to date and reflects what is commonly used in real life / work situations. Students are exposed to authentic and relevant learning opportunities. • Collaboration and learning together is our focus. We welcome feedback and use it to shape current and future programming. We support one another and grow together through mutual openness and restorative problem-solving. • In order to inspire trust, we take account of the strengths and barriers of our staff and students in order to foster a safe, empowering learning environment.




Transparency


We share our stories and knowledge with clarity to foster collaboration and openness. We keep open channels of communication about our near and long term goals and the health and direction of the organization.




Integrity


Our board members, staff and other volunteers are invested in our mission and our core values as we navigate in a quickly evolving digital world. We strive to grow in what we do in order to gain the confidence of everyone we work with—students, volunteers and partners. We believe it is our duty to follow through on our promise to help our students achieve their goals.




Partnership


• We believe that collaboration is a great source of education and see our relationships with our students and partners as opportunities for co-learning and professional development. This deepens our understanding and connection to community needs and makes us stronger. • We partner with other nonprofit organizations and local businesses to effectively identify gaps and close the digital divide.

I took the class and I finally stopped crying. I'm very glad I did.  So is my boss.
