In today's world, understanding how to effectively use a computer and the Internet is critical for people of every age.
It is the key to a better job, a richer life, a stronger community. Yet too often, those who have not been exposed to the benefits of technology are afraid of it or don't see the role it can play in their lives. At the Timothy Smith Network, we see technology as a tool that creates possibilities, inspires action, and changes lives.
