Anyone can join the team to help run the program, coordinate outreach, plan locations and schedule, and of course help with repairs and share tech expertise during events.  Contact the Fix-It Tech core team  to discuss opportunities.  Also see Hennepin County's Fix-it Clinic website  to volunteer to help with tech repairs or bring an item to be fixed.

Fix-It Tech event goals 

Fix-It Tech is based on Hennepin County's Fix-It Clinics for household items.

Community education: offering hands-on technical experience that helps residents get their items fixed; provides a place to get tech questions answered and get tips on how to maintain and protect personal devices;

IT workforce development: IT students gain experience in tech support alongside IT professionals and connect with residents concerning their technology needs;

Raise awareness of technology programs: the event provides a venue to promote free digital literacy training resources, low cost computer and Internet options, local IT education programs, and IT careers. 

We look forward to continuing Fix-It Tech events at a variety of locations.  Contact the Fix-It Tech Team to get involved and to host an event.
