Mission Statement

Tech Exchange increases opportunity for low-income East Bay students and families by providing equitable technology access and support in homes and in schools.

Description

Over the last 22 years, we have distributed 43,000 computers to low-income East Bay families, and diverted over 800 tons of e-waste from landfills in the process. Our core program is distribution of our digital inclusion solution, which connects low-income families who are "digitally dark," by providing them with a free computer, free tech support, and assistance accessing affordable $10/month internet. Tech Exchange’s core programming also includes partnership work with schools and other nonprofit agencies serving low-income populations, both through equipping them with free or affordable hardware, and through digital literacy trainings. We provide internship opportunities to prepare Oakland youth for careers in tech, with a focus on hardware repairs and customer service. Lastly, Tech Exchange prioritizes environmental stewardship through our electronic reuse model.
