OVERVIEW

CITY PLUG SCHOOL

Students and their parents/caregivers learn together from the students’ teachers, focusing on topics such as tracking grades, increasing parent-school engagement,  finding after-school programs, and more. The program involves 15 hours of group training outside the school day conducted by a TGH-trained staff member from the child’s school in which the course is run. Tutorials focus on topics such as tracking the child’s grades and attendance online, securing a professional email, and finding web-based family resources. Upon completion, families have the option of purchasing a new computer for $50 and TGH helps them find low-cost Internet options.

CITY PLUG SMALL BUSINESS

Local micro entrepreneurs gain digital tools to strengthen their businesses and, in turn, the local economy. The curriculum focuses on leveraging city resources, managing finances, developing an effective web presence, accepting credit card payments, and more. We offer small business owners 15 hours of free, hands-on technology and Internet resource instruction via qualified trainers from the community. Our partner training sites include Dorchester Bay EDC, Codman Square NDC, Project Hope, City of Somerville, and many other trusted local organizations. Upon program completion, participants can purchase a new device for $50.

CITY PLUG COMMUNITY

Adults learn fundamental digital skills from local community site staff. Courses cover topics including but not limited to job searching, financial literacy, communicating with friends and family, and finding educational programs. The program involves 15 hours of training conducted by a TGH-trained staff member from the community organization in which the course is run. Courses run in libraries, community centers, public housing developments, and more. Upon completion of TGH, participants have the option of purchasing a new computer for $50 and we help them sign up for low-cost Internet access.

CITY PLUG SCHOOL

Young children and their parents/caregivers learn to use mobile apps for early language, literacy, and STEAM skill-building. Families practice early learning strategies and discuss challenges and opportunities in parenting with technology. Each course is 15 hours, taught by an early education specialist, at the completion of which the family gets a new iPad loaded with educational apps, all for $50.

TGH’s programs are strengthened through the work of our 150+ volunteers who assist in two types of roles: in-class and event-based. In-class volunteers work alongside our trainers to support participants and families as they learn how to use the Internet, often in multiple languages. These critical volunteers help learners establish foundational competence and confidence that enable them to keep learning long beyond course completion. We also need assistance at one-off events.

CITY PLUG COMMUNITY

TGH is working hard to connect Greater Boston residents to the Internet.
