Welcome to the Neighborhood Network National Consortium
The NNNC serves twenty-three regional consortium and eighteen hundred and fifty-three neighborhood technology Centers.
Since 1995, affordable housing developments all over the U.S. have seeded self-sufficiency for low and moderate income residents through computer access and meaningful adoption of technology and media tools in residence-based Neighborhood Network technology centers. As it stands in 2009, Neighborhood Networks centers offer programs and services to more than 160,000 adults and seniors and more than 100,000 youth, ranging from job training and literacy to youth afterschool media literacy and leadership programs.
The Neighborhood Networks National Consortium is a membership network of these hardworking centers and regional consortia. Our national web of center staff, partner organizations and agencies, and community technology advocates works to increase awareness of the Neighborhood Networks Initiative and improve access to resources. The ultimate goal of this nation-wide consortium is to support the sustainability of Neighborhood Networks technology centers throughout the United States. The national consortium will also allow Neighborhood Networks technology centers across the country that do not have access to local consortia receive benefits of consortium participation.
