Dear Friends and Supporters,

The South End Technology Center Inc (SETC) appreciates the generosity of individuals and organizations in the community, like you, to support the many individuals who have benefited from the services and resources we offer.

While industry is recruiting skilled workers from overseas to fill STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) positions, we at South End Technology Center have a long-term commitment to increasing the capacity of our constituents (youth through adult) to learn the technology in order to compete and fill those positions. To this end we have exposed many individuals between the ages of 5 and older who come from all backgrounds. Many of our instructors have been volunteers, interns and college mentors. 

One such program, our Learn 2 Teach, Teach 2 Learn since 2002 has exposed over 3,000 of Boston’s youth in underserved communities to STEM and has established a STEM pipeline that extends from elementary school through college.

Another program Personal and Professional Empowerment Program (PPEP) engages adults who have been in recovery or incarcerated to learn new technology to include computer literacy, job search, and digital fabrication in order to be able to access career opportunities. We have served over 500 individuals. 

Through our Open Access, individuals are able to utilize the computers for personal use.

We also provide some computer repair services and some courses in web design, Microsoft applications and how to access operating systems- MAC OS or Windows.

Our programs are only as strong as its supporters. Your continued contributions to our efforts will keep technology accessible to everyone.  Please support us by contributing as generously as you can.

In Solidarity,
