"YTC Connects" is our effort to close the inequity gap exacerbated by the digital divide in both local and international communities. We do so by teaching our students to refurbish computers as well as training others to repeat the process under our supervision. Our Charter Clubs or affiliates find deserving families or organizations and then find the resources necessary to put technology into the hands of people who are left behind.

Without ever charging for a program or an experience, over 2,500 YTC students have refurbished and donated over 4,000 computers to 40+ communities in North America

Fall 2022

Our fall program of 2022 targeted the Evanston Community, addressing needs at The Childcare Network of Evanston and Equity for Evanston.  We also sought to address the dire need of the people of Haiti, reconnect with old friends in Tepuanes Mexico, and launch a new partnership through our mentor Prosper Tornyi in the country of Ghana

Fall 2023 saw us leverage partnerships and volunteers with our

Club at ETHS, as well as the students at Morton East in order to address the inequity brought about by a lack of access to the digital world in underserved communities.


Families of the Tepehuanes Municipality in the Mexican state of Durango welcome YTC as they arrive with 100 computers to donate.

At the heart of the matter.

YTC has been a force for good, serving and connecting communities, both locally and internationally.

The digital divide is not just a policy or infrastructure issue. It is a social justice matter in that lack of access to technology disproportionately affects people of color, low-income individuals, and families.
