The 501 Talks Tech training series is a free service for nonprofits covering a variety of technology topics. The focus is to expand the nonprofit sector’s use of technology by providing information, as well as free and low-cost tools, to increase community resources and improve outcomes. Each interactive workshop lasts one-to-four hours with the goal that participants walk away having learned something that can be directly applied to their nonprofit.
