Community Technology Empowerment Project
 
 
 
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 improve access to digital skills training and technology in the Twin Cities. 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. CTEP is a department of the Saint Paul Neighborhood Network, an organization dedicated to building community through media. SPNN serves as a home base for a tight-knit cohort of 35 AmeriCorps members who meet twice a month for day-long trainings. We take our member support seriously and over 97% of our members successfully complete their year, one of the highest retention rates of any AmeriCorps program in the state. Would you like to make your mark in a dynamic organization dedicated to empowering people to use media and technology to better lives, find employment, create stories and build common understanding? Come join CTEP’s team of creative, dedicated staff and AmeriCorps members in our quest to include as many people as possible in our digital world.

Member Duties : CTEP members teach digital literacy skills for social, civic and economic empowerment. Some people in our program teach basic digital skills, while others teach more advanced skills. You do not have to be a technology whiz to be in our program! We make each position as meaningful as possible with a 50/50 mix of direct service and capacity building. You will get a chance to develop interesting projects that will make a lasting difference at your site. Be a part of a cohort that annually certifies over 1500 community members in technology skills, of whom 650 later go on to successfully find employment. Work together with other CTEP members on a group civic engagement project in which you tackle an issue related to digital inclusion with outside community agencies.
