The South End Technology Center
@ Tent City (The Tech Center) is a collaborative venture between the Tent City Corporation (TCC) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Our fundamental purpose is to enable people to become producers of knowledge and sharers of ideas and information. Our scope and methods are as diverse as the people we serve.  We provide free or low-cost access and training in most aspects of computer-related technology.  The staff, mostly volunteers, have extensive backgrounds in computer technology and their applications. 

The goals of the
Tech Center are as follows:
  • Recruit and train persons in computer technology who have been excluded from the technological revolution and are at an increased risk of joblessness.

  • Encourage community residents to use information technology as a means of personal and professional development.

  • Help residents move from being consumers of information to producers and creators of knowledge.

Learn 2 Teach, Teach 2 Learn makes a difference.  Since 2002, the Learn 2 Teach, Teach 2 Learn (L2TT2L) program has been working to create a critical mass of Boston youth creatively engaged in the latest STEAM (STEM + Arts) education who can help catalyze deep cultural change in their communities.  L2TT2L works effectively for over 600 Boston youth annually.   It has also been nationally recognized as an “exemplar” STEM program by Change the Equation, a consortium of high tech corporation CEOs and their independent evaluators.
