FreeGeek Toronto - Bridging the Digital Divide
I’m a part of Free Geek Toronto, a non-profit social enterprise that helps bridge the digital divide. Located in the heart of West Queen West, we accept donations of electronic waste, refurbish computers and re-sell them at an accessible price to help low income communities get connected. We also train and employ individuals who have struggled with employment to work in the day to day operations of the organization. So if you've got some old tech taking up space, consider donating it Free Geek Toronto.
I'm also an instructor / educator with over a decade of experience teaching in a variety of fields (adult literacy, technology, employment skills, computer repair) whose worked in the non-profit sector for the last five years. Before that I had a small computer repair business and help with Digital Storytelling Toronto, a project that focuses on helping people and organizations learn the basics of storytelling and video production to create their own stories.
