Tech Goes Home Chattanooga expanding

Tech Goes Home Chattanooga (TGH), the new digital equity initiative from The Enterprise Center, is expanding to 20 locations across Hamilton County this fall. The growth of the program has been made possible largely through support and funding from the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County, as well as local foundations and businesses.

TGH is partnering with schools, public libraries, churches, nonprofits, and other organizations to provide 15 hours of free training to help participants acquire the skills to be able to access information and resources online. Upon completion of the course, participants have the option to purchase a new Chromebook for only $50. The program also helps interested families secure low- cost home Internet service through one of several available options.

TGH offers programs for preschoolers and school aged children (who must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver), as well as adults. Those interested in enrolling can obtain more information and an application from the course location.

Tech Goes Home Chattanooga is also seeking volunteers to help work with participants during classes. For more info about volunteering for the TGH program, please visit techgoeshomecha.org.
