Many people in New Mexico have limited or no access to technology. In addition, the IT field lacks diversity, though having people from different backgrounds would benefit the development of software, hardware, and applications. DiverseIT addresses these issues as a community resource offered through Adelante.Training and employment are provided to people in disadvantaged populations.
Training TechnologyAdelante DiverseIT provides on-the-job IT training to populations who have been traditionally under-represented in technology, including people with disabilities, women, and people of color. Each intern works cooperatively with the DiverseIT team while working on their own individual training plans and pursuing a variety of IT certifications.
People gain real-world experience, which helps our interns become more likely to find success in securing good paying IT jobs in the community.
Recycling & Re-Use of ComputersTechnology changes quickly, but your system, four years old or newer, can still benefit our community. DiverseIT interns refurbish donated computers and provide IT support services to individuals and organizations as part of the DiverseIT training program.
Refurbished computers are donated to people with disabilities or seniors who cannot otherwise afford them. Computers can help people return to work or pursue educational goals.
DiverseIT also provides computers to nonprofit organizations, as a community resource – setting up offices or computer learning centers. Hundreds of nonprofit organizations have benefited from DiverseIT support and services.
IT ServicesBusinesses and individuals can hire Adelante DiverseIT to repair or upgrade their computers. The DiverseIT team can help set up your network or printers, handle system updates, back-up data and more, at a reasonable cost that benefits both your organization and Adelante DiverseIT.
If you're a person with a disability who needs a computer, someone who'd like to learn IT skills, or if you need your computer repaired, please contact:
