A Minnesota Model for Bridging the Domestic Digital Divide

by Peter Elwell

Americorps Community Technology Empowerment ProgramSince 2004 the Community Technology Empowerment Project (CTEP) has connected individuals with technology expertise to community and non-profit organizations with a distinct need for these skills.

CTEP is part of the AmeriCorps program, which is federally funded through the Corporation for National and Community Service.

If you live in or are visiting the Twin Cities you may have indirectly (and unknowingly) experienced the work of CTEP members serving a diverse set of organizations such as: The WorkForce Center, Saint Paul Public Library and Minneapolis Telecommunications Network by helping these organization better provide digital literacy resources to low-income and immigrant communities in the area.
