Community Collaborations

In 2010, C2SDK developed a community-based strategy to engage San Diego companies and individuals in meeting the technological needs of the more than 280,000 low-income families currently living without access to in home technology.

Within each community, C2SDK creates Collaboratives bringing together local businesses and individuals to identify and secure continuous computer resources and funding.
