Equity. Empower. Enrich.
This year, we celebrate 25 years of Minnesota Tech for Success. Since our inception, we have placed over 100,000 computers in schools and educationally focused organizations in the Twin Cities and have helped advance digital equity by training over 1,800 students.
By providing access to no-cost training and digital certification courses, we empower individuals to pursue educational and career opportunities. We enrich the lives of our participants and the planet as we strive to provide top-tier resources while responsibly recycling and refurbishing technology. Please consider giving the gift of digital inclusion. Your support helps place the next 100,000 computers and increases opportunities for youth and adults around the Twin Cities. As we eagerly plan for the next 25 years, we are grateful for the support of our partners and community.
Through our Computer Donation program, we create digital equity for students across the state by increasing access to technology.
Free technology training changes lives by giving students the skills they need to be successful in school and the workforce.
Any technology that can’t be refurbished is recycled responsibly, keeping used technology out of landfills.
Supporting Education Across the Community
Beyond redistributing computers to schools and students across the state, we have programming for students of all ages to help develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence required for success in school, the community and the workforce.
Our NAID and R2V3 certified computer donation and recycling program provides computers to schools, educational nonprofits, and underserved students.
Our no-cost IT certification classes help people develop the technical and professional skills needed to secure employment in the IT world.
We place computers with learners of all ages to stay connected to their education and professional aspirations from anywhere.
Recycle and Refurbish
We Recycle and Refurbish Computers
We refurbish computers donated from businesses and redistribute them to students and schools in need. Our programs give students the skills and confidence they need to succeed in school and begin a career in IT.
We Ensure Your Data Security
As a NAID AAA-certified organization, we have the highest standards with regard to data security and destruction. We haven’t had a single data breach since we started operating in 1997.
Our Student Success
Providing computers and IT training to students in need at no cost has changed the course of people’s lives.
“Access to laptops outside of school exponentially increases students’ ability to complete homework, correspond with employers, universities, friends, and teachers via modern communication methods, and become literate with 21st-century technology in a lower stress environment.”Paul Creager, Gordon Parks High School
“Before I got the laptop, I had to share one with the rest of my siblings. This meant that I could not use it as often, and this sometimes caused me to stay up until early the next morning typing a paper for one of my classes.”Jordan
“Everyone in our IT certification program knew the class was opening doors for us and would help us change our lives. I added the Cisco IT Essentials certification to my resume and already got some hits from potential jobs. I feel empowered and feel like I can grow.”Jeremiah
