Technology Services Corps

Technology Services Corps is a non-profit organization based in the Seattle area that engages youth in technology-oriented service projects, including working in teams to refurbish used computers, to install them in underserved areas around the world, and to teach the recipients in the use and maintenance of the computers. TSC promotes leadership and skill development, community service, and global perspectives in youth who are engaged in the organization. It also promotes access to technology for communities around the world that lack such access due to limited resources.

Update on TSC Ghana Trip

We have a great diverse team of 19 high school students.  They are working very hard preparing for the trip to Ghana.  They are refurbishing 50 laptops donated by the Gates Foundation and 40 other desktop computers.  We are also learning how to network the computers so we can install 5 computer labs in villages near Kumasi.  These computers are important so the Ghanaian students are prepared to pass exams to enter and continue high school.

We look forward to sharing information and photos with you about how the computer lab installation goes, and what we learn from the Ghanaians on our visit.

We appreciate your generous support of the project which helps us get the computer networking equipment, monitors and scholarships for the high school students.  This work would not be possible without the kind support of donors like you.

Update on TSC Activities

The schools in India are still actively using the 45 laptops that were installed by both teachers and students.  IDEX fellows continue to help support the schools with the computers.

The 90 computers have arrived back in the USA, and are being refurbished for upcoming trips to Ghana and Guatemala in 2013.

Again, a special thanks for donations made in Ben Huppe's honor.  Ben was instrumental in making previous trips to India, Ghana and Guatemala a success.  We continue to work hard to honor his many contributions. 

TSC is well underway preparing for the trip to Ghana in 2013.  Three talented Garfield High School Students were chosen as trip leads and 17 diverse students were chosen as team members to set up 5 computer labs in rural areas near Kumasi.  Learn more about this trip at the link below.

Many thanks for your support of TSC’s work.  It is greatly appreciated.  Best wishes for a Happy New Year!!

TSC's next trip in April 2013

High School Students Using the Computers

The schools in India are still actively using the 45 laptops that were installed by both teachers and students.  IDEX fellows continue to help support the schools with the computers.

Unfortunately another 90 computer will be returned to the USA, since they were classified as e-waste and not importable.

A special thanks for donations made in Ben Huppe's honor.  It is great loss of such a remarkable and gifted young man for our community.  Ben's vision, hard work and dedication is what guided TSC's development.

TSC is planning it's next trip to Ghana in April, 2013.  Garfield High School Students are currently applying to be trip leads.  The photos of the trip to Ghana in 2011 will provide a glimpse of our next trip. 

Many thanks for your support of the India project.  Please look for other TSC projects on Global Giving soon.
