How We Work With Partners

Team4Tech partners with local nonprofit organizations for three to five years to support the nonprofit organization in achieving its own goals through technology integration for education impact. We spend three to four months in conversation with the nonprofit, defining the overall goals of the collaboration and the metrics to measure progress. Then we scope annual pro bono projects which typically involve 1300 hours of pro bono consulting and technology grants of up to $15,000. We ask the nonprofits to match the grant to demonstrate their shared commitment to the project.

On each annual project, we engage a team of pro bono consultants from leading technology companies to learn about the nonprofit’s needs. Together they design technology solutions and trainings to best meet the goals of the nonprofit and the needs of the staff, the learners, as well as the local culture and context. The pro bono consultants then spend 1-2 weeks onsite (accompanied by a Team4Tech Program Director) to implement the technology solutions and build capacity to use the technology effectively in teaching and learning.

For all nonprofit partners, we require a commitment to regularly meet with our Team4Tech Program Directors and report on key metrics based on the agreed upon project goals to ensure progress towards sustainability and scale.
