The Computer Reuse Center at the Computer Technologies Program is the formalization of activities that CTP has done for more than 10 years. The primary goals of the CRC are:
- Provide work experience for disabled students in the training program at CTP.
- Raise funds for the operation of CTP’s services.
- Bridge the “digital divide” in a way that benefits everyone involved.
You might notice none of the stated primary goals are about being green!
The CRC respects the environmental movement and its goals however computer reuse has been a good idea for under served populations long before being green hit the mainstream. That fact that CRC helps people with disabilities while being green just makes it all that much better.
