The Mobile Tech Lab is a 48-foot converted bookmobile equipped with computers and Wi-Fi that allows Connect.DC to bring the power of technology to neighborhoods across the District, with a particular focus on residents in Wards 5, 7, and 8. We partner with District government agencies and nonprofit organizations to teach classes on the Mobile Tech Lab and help residents sign up for email accounts, low-cost internet service, and other government services.
If your organization has a web-based program that you would like to bring to underserved communities, please read our eligibility criteria for prospective partners. Organizations with eligible programs should contact Michell Morton ([email protected]) for more information.
