Community Technology Empowerment Project


The Community Technology Empowerment Project (CTEP) AmeriCorps 
bridges the "digital divide" for new Immigrants and low-income communities
in Minneapolis and St. Paul. CTEP AmeriCorps members help youth and adults use technology to better access social, civic, educational and economic opportunities.


CTEP AmeriCorps Members:

  • Teach technology literacy at non-profits, community centers, and libraries
  • Assess partner agencies' technology capacities and train staff on how to best use those capacities;
  • Develop stronger volunteer bases through which agencies can extend programming and more adequately meet the needs of targeted communities;
  • Develop culturally and linguistically appropriate informational websites and public service announcements (PSAs) that provide community members with access to critical resources and information.
