Tech goes home CHA graduates first 72 students

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) – The Tech Goes Home Chattanooga (TGH CHA) pilot program launched last February at six locations across the county as a part of an increased focus on digital inclusion. The programs was featured recently in Mayor Andy Berke’s State of the City address.

Through partnerships with schools and community institutions, TGH CHA participants develop skills and habits required for smart technology and Internet use. Enrollees receive fifteen hours of classroom training to help them develop new skills and understand why the internet is so relevant in their daily lives.

Upon completion of the course, participants have the option to purchase a new Chromebook for only $50. They also receive assistance in obtaining access to low-cost home internet.
