Fix-It Tech Event Goals Fix It Tech main page

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. 

The City's IT Department initiated the Fix-It Tech events with community partners in response to the Minneapolis Community Technology survey results and our experiences working with residents on their technology needs. The 2014 survey results show that residents overall are not very comfortable troubleshooting computer problems, installing software or backing up files, or protecting themselves online.

Our program history section shows where we've been with locations, dates, photos & stories from previous Fix-It Events!

Our original partners in Fix-It Tech are TAKODA Institute - a Division of the American Indian OIC, and Little Earth of United Tribes.Fix-It Tech Partners
