Technology plays an essential role in today’s workforce – yet thousands of Washingtonians lack even basic computer skills. Byte Back combats poverty by providing free computer training and career preparation to low-income individuals and placing them into living wage careers. Through digital literacy classes, adults with low or no tech skills learn the basics of how to use a computer, the internet, email, and Microsoft Office Suite. Free industry-recognized tech certification courses prepare clients for careers in IT and business services. Certification graduates then get the career support they need, including job search assistance and mock interviews, to build soft skills and secure new jobs. Last year, Byte Back helped 60 graduates move into jobs, increasing their annual income by $24,000. Your support bridges the digital divide, leading to a world of opportunity for people in need.
