Twin-Cities-based Technology Literacy Collaborative (TLC) announced the launch of their new website today. The re-launch replaces what was previously “under-utilized” and features an events calendar, a map of local community technology centers, database of resources and a group blog.
Originally funded by the Minneapolis Foundation, with in-kind contributions from Project for Pride in Living, Waite House, and Minneapolis Public Library (ADC foundation also provided a grant last year) — this all-volunteer initiative exists to create a unified voice among a group of non-profit supporters committed to sharing best practices, advocating for technology literacy skills and access, and promoting collaborative efforts. “There are many local non-profits and similar causes all committed to solving Minnesota’s digital divide/inclusion problem. The TLC can help to connect like-minded people while avoiding the need to re-invent the wheel, ” says Libby Caulum, Co-chair of the TLC Executive Committee.
