We are working with a variety of organizations and individuals in Austin.
Our partners are:
- Austin Free-Net (AFN)
provides community computing resources for the benefit of Austin area
citizens and is the heart of this event. Through public access sites, the
AFN seeks to provide every Austinite with access to the Internet/National
Information Infrastructure by the year 2000. The AFN is a nonprofit
community organization with partners in Austin's educational, civic, and
corporate communities. AFN is also affiliated with the National Public Telecomputing
Network, an alliance of community computing networks in over 50
cities in the United States and the world.
- The Austin Learning Academy is a community consortium of
individuals and organizations that are united in support of education, job
training, and family support efforts in Austin's low-income neighborhoods.
ALA's primary focus is the Family Learning Centers which operate in eight
Austin public housing developments.
- The Family Learning Centers are a project of the Austin Learning Academy.
Operating in or nearby eight public housing developments across the city,
the FLC provides an array of education, community service, job training, and
family support services. FLCs provide a setting where teachers and service
providers can work side-by -side with parents.
We are excited about this project and look forward to sharing ideas and
information with any groups or individuals across the U.S. who are doing
related work. Currently, we are asking for donations of modems and copies
of DOS 5.0. If you have either of these things or would like to talk more
about this project, please contact us by clicking HERE.
