This organization has helped my son so much in allowing him to volunteer and eventually become a staff member. I can never express my gratitude for that. Free IT Athens has an amazing ability to enhance the lives of so many of the under served of the Athens area. They are an incredible group of people who truly have a heart for helping others.

Free I.T. is a great non-profit organization that provides it's volunteers with a friendly learning environment, knowledgeable staff and the opportunity to earn a free laptop computer after a certain number of volunteer hours (working on refurbishing donated computers). The staff is very friendly and easily approachable. Even if you know nothing at all about the inner workings of a computer, or how it's put together, there's always someone there to help you learn. It's been a great experience for me, and I really enjoyed getting to know the other volunteers and staff!
