About AUSTIN FREE-NET
2209 ROSEWOOD AVE, AUSTIN, TX 78702, US
Our mission is to provide technology training and computer access to the community, fostering skills that enable people to succeed in the digital age. Austin Free-Net believes that access to the internet is imperative in the 21st century and beyond and those without the digital skills to use any digital device and specifically computers are at a disadvantage. Those most affected by the digital divide are among the most underserved groups in the Austin community. Many do not have computers or broadband connections in their homes. The digital divide means they are unable to take advantage of economic and educational opportunities.
Austin Free-Net is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded to provide individuals with access to community, technology training and resources, and the skills necessary to "succeed in the digital age." Since 1995, Austin Free-Net has been "working to bridge the digital divide" in the Austin, Texas, area, and now maintains more than 100 free computer stations at various cities throughout the city to support over 100,000 computer sessions each year.
Envisioning a world free of digital barriers, Austin Free-Net offers free adult computer training programs as well as low-cost computer training programs for government staff, nonprofit organizations, and small businesses. In 2016, the organization launched it Techno-Women program, a new community initiative that prepares and certifies low-income women for careers in technology through a 34-week program in COMPTIA Network and CompTIA A+ certifications.
Austin Free-Net is supported by its team of approximately 250 volunteers who provide service in the areas of IT support, administrative support, outreach, event management, and digital education. Austin Free-Net is a supporter of flexible work and in the past has hired for part-time employment opportunities.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
