Review for Byte Back, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a student at Byte Back and they are a great asset to the community. They really are doing so much good work on such a shoe string budget. My only concern is that they need more money to offer more computer training and resources. This is not thier fault, but I think corporate donors and foundations really need to give more to Byteback since they are doing the education that Universities and Expensive Training Centers do at little to low or no costs. The Digital Divide is an Economic Divide. Paying Thousands of Dollars in Tuition to Training Centers and Universities is out of reach for must urban poor and even most low to middle class. Byteback has an affordable and value added community based training that doesn't discriminate on income so more students can take advantage. I challenge all Corporate Donors to think about the future of Technology without the Non-Profit Training Centers like Byteback. That is a world where the Digital Divide grows larger. We can't afford to allow that to happen. Byte Back is the Answer. Thanks ByteBack!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

ByteBack is affordable and has high Quality and responsive to the needs of the community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Professional, Nice, Talented and Dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Break Down the Digital Divide in Washington, DC and across the Nation by Partnering with Local High Schools and Universities and other Non-Profits to make Basic Technology Education an Affordable Right, Not a Privilege.

Ways to make it better...

More Money had been given by Corporate Donors to help build up Byteback.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of Money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

ByteBack is Great, but needs more Money.
