- NetDay created TechBridge to train members in
the skills they need to make a difference with technology at
their community: education concepts, technology resources
appropriate for schools, citizenship, and mentoring.
- All members received training in conflict resolution,
problem solving, teamwork, diversity awareness, and planning
after their volunteer service.
- All members put their training in civic responsibility
to use by conducting a needs assessment of their local
developing programs to address issues.
- By strengthening communities, NetDay programs have a multiplier
effect and build the foundation for sustainability.

with community-based organizations, faith-based organizations,
and other AmeriCorps programs
to share resources and activities.
