Our core initiatives by the numbers:
- REBOOT INITIATIVE | 1910 Computers placed into community

Join the SFDA
With your help we will indeed be able to connect our community to a brighter future. Our organization is in need of:
An expanded network of interns to assist in refurbishing equipment and implementing public, community technology learning centers.
Volunteers from technology service companies
And most importantly, additional funding in the form of corporate sponsorships, grants and donations to offset connectivity, hardware, maintenance and support costs.
The SFDA’s mission is to assist all of South Florida’s residents in leveraging technology to create economic, educational, and social opportunites..

Bridging the digital divide in South Florida is important to me because technology is the ‘silver bullet’ to improving our local economy.
Imagine if your access to the digital world of online shopping, travel reservations, job applications, email, …, was shut off. Your life would be more difficult, expensive, inconvenient, and limited. Many people in South Florida lack the opportunities…Peter Korinis
