Tech Goes Home

Tech Goes Home Chattanooga is The Enterprise Center’s signature digital inclusion program.

Aimed at making technology accessible to all, Tech Goes Home offers digital literacy training, a subsidized laptop or tablet, and assistance signing up for low-cost home internet. Since 2015, more than 5,500 people of all ages have graduated from the program and over 4,600 devices have been distributed.


Tech Goes Home works with partner organizations, including schools, churches, community centers, and other nonprofit organizations, to train instructors who are trusted members of the community being served. By collaborating with community partners, Tech Goes Home is able to effectively serve such populations as: the elderly, students and their parents, people with disabilities, Spanish speakers, people transitioning from incarceration, artists, and others.

Digital skills, a device, and home internet.

​Modeled after Boston’s Tech Goes Home program, the program provides 15 hours of digital skills training — like online banking, applying for a job, or checking your child’s progress in school — to help participants acquire the skills to be able to access information and resources online, and improve their quality of life. Upon completion of the course, participants also have the option to purchase a new device (laptop or tablet) for a co-pay of only $50. The program also offers assistance in securing low-cost home internet service through one of several available options.

"I was given access to a wide variety of resources: technology, connections in the community and with organizations, and training that I wouldn't have received otherwise — and certainly not all in the same place."
