Hoda Elbeltagi has worked hard to learn how to use computers with our CTEP AmeriCorps Member at Adult Options in Education in Hopkins.


If you have basic computer and technology skills, such as how to use email and the Microsoft Office suite, then you have more to teach than you realize. This is because as many as one in five people do not feel comfortable using basic computers and smartphone technology—which is troubling when you consider how much information, resources, and communication is solely online these days. The Community Technology Empowerment Project (CTEP) was founded in order to address the deep divide between people who have access to computers and digital skills training and those who do not.

Our 35 AmeriCorps members teach digital skills at four main types of Twin Cities host sites: 1) libraries, 2) community media centers, 3) employment centers, and 4) schools for adult learners. These sites integrate technology training to help give adults and youth the 21st century digital skills they need to be successful.
