As a nonprofit organization, you’re often stretched thin, scrimping and saving to cover costs and get the help you need with a variety of tasks. For your technology projects, The Community Corps (TCC) is a great, no-cost resource to bridge the digital divide.

twitter-292994_1280_pixabayOur partner, The Community Corps connects nonprofits to experienced tech volunteers from top companies who can assist with technical training, resources and programming—throughout the country.

Since its start, TCC has matched thousands of volunteers to nonprofits, with a large focus on the advancement of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education and fostering the development of women in technology.

Kelli Antonucci, TCC’s Nonprofit Outreach Manager, tells us this is a great time for nonprofits to get tech help.

“We’ve had a huge surge in volunteer interest and are barely keeping up with getting enough projects for them,” Antonucci said.

“This is a wonderful time for nonprofits to post projectsas soon as they are posted, we have volunteers signing up.”

The type of tech help TCC volunteers can provide ranges from training on software platforms like Excel and Salesforce to updating websites to adding enhancements like a calendar or a blog.

When you post a project on TCC, there are 10 major categories for assistance: technology planning and assessments, STEM career development, website, Microsoft Office, infrastructure, STEM events, Social Media, STEM program design, The Cloud, and data.

Best of all, tech help from The Community Corps is free.  To get started, just create your TCC account and post your request or project to attract volunteers.
