Who We Are
Hope TEC is dedicated to serving some of the most technological disadvantaged communities in the Chicagoland area. Our mission is to provide adults and youth with digital literacy, essential life skills, and job readiness training programs.
We recognize the need for accessible real world training in inner city communities and the need to prepare its residents in the emerging global economy. We believes in empowering people with computer training programs, educational classes, and employment opportunities. Our goal is to transform individual lives, enhance family’s lifestyles, generations, and neighborhoods.
This year, we are inviting you to join Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, Alderman Leslie Hairston and Congressmen Danny K. Davis and Bobby L. Rush in celebrating and supporting Hope Tec!
