Tech Goes Home is dedicated to addressing the digital inequities that deny people the opportunity to succeed.
Tech Goes Home programs serve people of all ages, with courses geared towards families, adults, entrepreneurs, seniors, and more. We bring computers, internet, and training to families and individuals throughout Greater Boston so students can do homework, adults can find jobs and manage finances, seniors can connect with loved ones, and all can lead healthy lives.
We offer programs for adults, as well as family-based intergenerational programs. TGH’s family-based programs engage youth and their caregivers together to learn digital skills as a team. Each family or individual who participates in our programs receives 15 hours of live, interactive digital skills training, a Chromebook or iPad, and, if needed, 12 months of internet services.

About Tech Goes Home
Who We Are
Founded in 2000, Tech Goes Home (TGH) empowers communities to access and use digital tools to overcome barriers and advance lives. Our programs are directed at individuals without technology at home, with a focus on those who are un- or under-employed, are from low-income households, have limited English proficiency, or are living with disabilities.
In the past five years alone, we have graduated 22,000 learners from our programs and distributed 14,500 new computers.
We measure success by the digital life skills, computers, and internet access that graduates gain through participating in the TGH program, and the extent to which they feel empowered to apply those skills and tools to improve their lives in whatever way will benefit them most. Last year:
graduates report that they learned skills that can help improve their lives
children are better able to do schoolwork online because of TGH
graduates have used their TGH device and digital skills for their health and wellness
Take a Look
Listen to what TGH learners and leaders have to say about TGH and how the program has affected their lives.
"The best part is having more time with my son. He is teaching me more than I expected, we are doing homework together."
"He's always able to show me something new I didn't know. This was a great opportunity for [Tequan] to do that."
"The class bonded. If one person didn't know how to do something, we did a sharing experience... It's empowered me."
