Working in adult education in the District of Columbia, I have been hearing about Byte Back since I first came to the area. However, it wasn't until I began directing a local Americorps program and placed two Americorps members at Byte Back that I had the pleasure of gaining a better understanding of the great work that they are doing.
I knew that Byte Back offers critical computer and job training opportunities to the community, particularly for low-income members of the community. I knew that the administration and education there are engaging, knowledgeable, dedicated professionals and the volunteers who teach many of the classes know their stuff. What I didn't realize until I walked in for my first visit to the main site is how all this comes together to create a dynamic, productive, welcoming environment. It is a place where you know things are getting done, learning is happening, and students and staff are working together for mutual success.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the successes that our Americorps members have experienced there. They have been supported in their work, provided opportunities to grow, and shown appreciation for the work they do. This speaks to the quality of the staff and organization as a whole.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every month
