We're excited to announce that we have reopened the waiting list for new partner sites to join our TGH courses. While we're currently not accepting new applications, you can still express your interest by joining the waiting list. We'll keep you updated as soon as opportunities become available.


Tech Goes Home collaborates with community-based organizations (schools, nonprofits, libraries, etc.) to offer devices, internet access, and digital skills training to the individuals and families most affected by the structural injustices at the root of digital exclusion.


TGH employs a train-the-trainer model that prepares and supports trusted instructors at those sites to teach a 15-hour course tailored to their learners, after which graduates earn a new digital device and one year of Internet subscription provided by TGH.


2. Meet with Our Team

A TGH representative will reach out to you to discuss next steps and answer any questions you may have. This meeting will be an opportunity for us to learn more about your organization, for you to learn more about TGH, and for us to collaboratively explore what a potential partnership might look like.

3. Decide to partner

Take any time needed to figure out the details of who/when/where/how the TGH program will be implemented at your organization. TGH will request one person to the the TGH Program Supervisor for your site and at least one other person to be the TGH Instructor (See step 4 and 5).

4. Identify one person to be the TGH Program Supervisor at your site.

The TGH Program Supervisor must be an employee of your site. This person will be responsible for:

  • Keeping TGH up-to-date on staff changes related to instructors and site leadership

  • Supervising the TGH program, instructors, assistants, and volunteers at your site. 

  • Answering inquiries and questions about the TGH program at your site that may be asked by TGH instructors at your site or individuals interested in becoming instructors at your site.

  • TGH will ask the Program Supervisor to step in if TGH has issues with communication, logistics, or compliance with any instructors, assistants, or volunteers from your site.


The TGH Program Supervisor will be asked to attend an orientation to learn about the TGH program, its role, and the responsibilities and logistics that TGH requires of the site, instructors, assistants, and volunteers.​

5. Identify people who will apply to be the TGH Instructors at your site.

Please identify at least one employee from your organization to implement the TGH course. These instructors need not be computer experts but should be comfortable using the internet, particularly tools such as email, Google search, Google Apps, and other basics. Most importantly, they should be welcoming, patient, and passionate about helping people learn life-changing skills!

This person will be responsible for:

  • Assisting learners in signing up for Internet service

  • All course logistics (such as tracking attendance and collecting learner feedback)

  • Prepping curriculum and teaching the course

7. Certify your TGH Instructors

Once your site partnership is official, you will receive instructions to share with your staff about an instructor application. They must complete a four-step process to be certified as a Tech Goes Home Instructor. 

  1. Complete an online instructor application

  2. Pass a short “Internet Basics” assessment with a score of 85% or higher

  3. Attend a 4-hour Instructor Orientation with our team.

  4. Complete a background CORI check.

8. Apply to start a course

Certified instructors at official partner sites can submit a course application for each cohort they would like to teach. While we can not approve every course that our partners want to teach, we do our best to meet the demand. Once the course is approved, the site may recruit participants and run the course!

6. Complete the official partnership application

Once we’ve mutually agreed to move forward, TGH will email you an official partnership application to gather information about the people who will be running the TGH program at your site. This application must be completed by the site executive of your organization (Executive Director, Site Director, and/or Head of School). 

1. Fill Out the TGH Partnership Inquiry Form

Please complete our Partnership Inquiry Form to be added to our partner waitlist. We will review your information and reach out regarding further steps when capacity allows.


Note: Due to current demands, waitlist times can vary from 2-6 months.
