Mission Statement

Free Geek Twin Cities (FGTC) is dedicated to addressing the following issues though direct, local, community-driven action: The Digital Divide There are still many people in our community that do not have access to computers and the Internet. There are many reasons for this gap in our population, but one of our main goals is alleviate this problem through work and education. Volunteers work in programs where they gain skills on how to use, build, and understand computers, and in the process earn a free computer. Electronic Waste (eWaste) With the rapid growth of technology, our community has created large quantities of electronic waste. FGTC accepts this waste and its first goal is to reuse this material and refurbish it into a new computer to give to volunteers or to sell in our thrift store. It is not always possible to reuse all the materials we get, so we are dedicated to recycling those materials in a way that is both environmentally and socially friendly.
