Welcome to Outreach Connect Group
A Technology and Education 501(c)3 Non-profit Corporation

Outreach Connect Group (OCG) is a start-up Washington State 501c(3) tax exempt non-profit founded in January 2002. Our mission is to better the lives of disadvantaged communities by providing access to and education of information and communicative technology. Our vision is to foster social involvement, provide the means to gain educational and job advancement and to teach users how to enrich their lives through technology.

Almost every individual living in a disadvantaged community could benefit from access and education of technology. However, what we have concluded through research is that, in most cases, the education and technology provided is outdated, unavailable or irrelevant. In order to truly benefit someoneís life, the technology and education have to be current, relevant and available. Additionally, the different needs of the community need to be addressed such as language, age and physical limitations.

Imagine.

You are an immigrant brand new to this country with very little job skills. You feel the pressure and intimidation of your limited English preventing you from getting a good paying job. You do not have the knowledge of how to leverage grants and public help to improve your situation.

You are a low-income senior with all of your family out-of-state and no friends in your immediate geographic area. Television has become your family. With no social activity, new challenges or stimulation you feel yourself deteriorating. Your expectancy for prolonged independent living is poor.


You are a young child living in a low-income environment. Your family cannot afford a computer, Internet connection or higher education. You feel your choices are limited for a successful life.

Now imagine the technology and education that could change all of these outcomes. That could breathe life and hope into a senior citizen, provide the educational tools and avenue for building strong job careers and provide unlimited possibilities for a growing child.







Imagination becomes reality with Outreach Connect Groupís Outreach Connect Program.
