Access to TechnologyAs members walk into the Digital NEST, they are handed a fully loaded laptop. Members use the laptops to access expensive, professional, multimedia software, take online technology courses, visit social networking sites, create original technology projects, and connect with peers and professionals with similar interests.
Technology EducationThe Digital NEST creates a pathway to higher education and career opportunities by offering members thousands of online and in-house courses such as digital film making, digital game design, networking, music recording, web site design, and graphic design.
Economic DevelopmentDigital NEST does not stop at “training” – we turn our members into technology consultants who provide technology support services to local small businesses, fostering entrepreneurship and fueling community economic development. Local and regional businesses in need of technology support can hire a Digital NEST member to complete their project at a competitive fee.
Safe SpaceThe first step in transforming youth and adults from low-income and rural communities into tomorrow’s tech workforce is giving them an alternative to the streets. The Digital NEST gives these youth and young adults a safe and productive place where they can reinvent their futures. We plan to use the Digital NEST model to create safe, high-tech spaces for youth in communities across the U.S.
