Human-I-T

Creating opportunities for all people, organizations, and our planet to thrive

Learn More

Human-I-T is a nonprofit and social enterprise that creates equitable access to opportunity by providing devices, internet access, digital skills training, and tech support for communities left on the wrong side of the digital divide, while at the same time, empowering businesses and organizations to do good by diverting technology from landfills to protect our planet.

We’re Working to Overcome

The Digital Divide

In the 21st century, access to technology and digital services is a right, not a privilege. Unfortunately, millions of Americans lack access to either a personal computer, internet connection, or both. The concept of the digital divide refers to the gap that’s growing between the populations who do not have access to computers, internet, digital literacy training, and technical support—and those who do. Equitable access to information and technology empowers people to achieve their fullest potential.

E-waste

Electronic waste, or e-waste, refers to electronic products that are unwanted, not working, or nearing the end of their useful life. E-waste is the fastest-growing waste stream in the world. Many of these products contain metals and materials that can be hazardous to human health when handled improperly or when they enter sources of groundwater. Recycling is no longer a sufficient method for disposing e-waste sustainably; given the scale of the climate crisis, reuse is now a prerequisite for protecting the planet.

Making a Difference

We tackle two problems with one solution—reducing e-waste and shrinking the digital divide—by refurbishing and refreshing donated devices, and distributing them to local communities through targeted programs and initiatives. We also make the devices available through our low-cost store that’s accessible to eligible individuals across the country—creating more equitable access to the technology our neighbors need to thrive.

By providing a full-range of technology and digital literacy training, we’re helping people across all communities achieve their potential: empowering students go to school remotely, facilitating seniors’ access to telehealth services, and supporting individuals entering the workforce—all while protecting the earth by keeping waste out of landfills.
