Students without access to technology miss important learning opportunities. Tech Rebirth Chattanooga PC Literacy Initiative connects low income students with no access to technology to lexia literacy training and global internet resources. The program uses the Comcast Internet Essentials program to provide Internet bandwidth to those who can't afford their own connection. Computers are donated by local businesses, refurbished, and placed in local nonprofit centers for children to use. This allows students to continue learning after school and during summer holidays. Tech Rebirth hopes to place hundreds of these machines in eligible individual homes so the students and their families have access to the global Internet and all its resources.
