community technology center (CTC)

A community technology center (CTC) is a facility that provides free or low-cost computer access, and sometimes training, to people lacking the resources to have a computer in their home. Such facilities are generally established through a collaborative effort on the part of government and non-profit organizations, as well as corporate and private citizens.

Community computing projects throughout the world are establishing CTCs as a means of bridging the digital divide . Typical features of a CTC include: free or inexpensive computer access on a walk-in basis; location in a low-income neighborhood; resources and training geared towards the needs of the community; and community input into center activities and administration.
