Digital illiteracy is a significant negative input that erodes educational and employment growth in under-resourced communities across the city. NTR’s mission is to ensure that all Philadelphians, regardless of income, have access to information technology and the capacity to take advantage of the academic, economic, and social opportunities that today’s technology affords. We do this by collaborating with schools, service agencies, faith-based organizations, welfare-to-work programs, and individual teachers all over Philadelphia to provide technology and training to vulnerable people of all ages.
