Those without a home computer and Internet access often have a more difficult time searching for jobs, creating and saving resumes, and accessing professional networks. Austin Free-Net provides free computer access and training to underserved Austin communities, with 85 computers spread across 15 Austin-area labs. Many of its clients are job seekers who are crafting computerized resumes for the first time.

Visitors to Austin Free-Net’s computer labs can bolster typing skills, build a resume to submit to potential employers, and embark on the online-job-application process. However, in order to maintain the health of the labs’ systems, its computers run a program that wipes hard drives after each client completes a session, preventing them from saving their work. Austin Free-Net would like to equip those who complete a computer course—such as basic skills or Word basics—with a 1-gigabyte flash drive. The drive contains enough storage space for users to save numerous documents and its portability will allow users to carry their information anywhere they go.

Join G-Team and donate $9 to help Austin Free-Net provide flash drives to clients who do not have their own computers. If G-Team members raise $450, Austin Free-Net can provide 50 clients with a 1-gigabyte flash drive. Each additional $9 raised will purchase one more flash drive for another client.
