Between 2010 and 2013, Critical Path was extremely proud to manage 27 out of 77 KEYSPOTS, or Public Computer Centers, and provide FREE training as part of the Philadelphia Freedom Rings Partnership, a collaborative city-wide initiative funded by the federal stimulus Broadband Technology Opportunity Program (BTOP). In 2013, the Freedom Rings Partnership became KEYSPOTS, and is supported by several collaborating agencies. The KEYSPOT Network is a program managed by The Mayor’s Commission on Literacy, on behalf of the City of Philadelphia in partnership with Drexel University. KEYSPOTS represents a citywide coalition of community-based groups committed to bringing Internet access, training, and technology to all Philadelphia communities.
Philadelphia FIGHT operates one KEYSPOT at the Institute for Community Justice and serves on the Coordinating Committee of the KEYSPOT Network.
