Information Technology Mission

“To deliver the highest quality computer technology training to our clients leading to industry recognized certification.” CitiWide uses information technology to close the digital divide and improve the educational and socio-economic conditions of low-income and under-employed Washington, D.C., residents. In this technology age it is imperative that leaders become proactive in introducing technology to the minority population. The cost of leaving people behind is far greater than the cost of reaching out to them. Bridging the information technology gaps are the unfinished work of the civil rights movement.
