The program transforms technology into a tool for community strength, empowering their members to gain technology knowledge and skills.


We teach technology and language classes to all ages

IBA’s Community Technology Center features a lab with 23 computers with high speed Internet and it offers free computer classes and other technology programs with the goal of helping participants gain critical digital knowledge needed to succeed.

Our Community Technology Center is part of the Timothy Smith Network. It is open to the public Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and it is used in the evenings for high school credential classes and college-level courses.


"For me, IBA’s Community Technology Center is a learning center, a social outlet, a comfort zone. I am constantly increasing my computer skills and at the same time jogging my mind. I am 72 years old, and this space keeps me 72 years young. Under the direction of Barbara Collins, I feel comfortable in knowing that there is someone there, who cares and will give me her undivided attention." - Toby Kaminkow, Student

The Program offers:

  • Basic computer classes.
  • Youth technology programs, such as Summer Tech Program and The Learn 2 Teach – Teach 2 Learn program.
  • Technology-focused college credit courses, offered through IBA’s partnership with Bunker Hill Community College.
  • Project-based learning programming for children and youth in science, technology, engineering, math and the arts.
  • Job Readiness Assistance (e.g. cover letter/ resume writing and internet-based job searches).
