CTC Connect — a Lumity initiative — is designed to increase the capacity and sustainability of Community Technology Centers (CTCs) in Chicago.
CTCs offer free access to computers, the Internet, and basic training on how to use computers to the general public. To be considered a CTC in the State of Illinois, the public must have access to the Center's technology for a minimum of 12 hours per week.
CTCs that participate in CTC Connect receive complimentary access to:
- Call center and onsite technology support
- Best practice resources and training
- Networking events
- Community Corps-Chicago, a volunteer recruitment/management tool
Lumity launched CTC Connect with 10 pilot sites reflecting a cross-section of program models, demographics served, and geographic representation of Chicago. A total of 70 CTCs will be incorporated over the two-year grant program.
