In honor of Byte Back’s 18th birthday, 18 students celebrate with us and share why they LOVE learning at Byte Back.


1. “I appreciate Byte Back because it gives a lot of folks who can’t afford it the opportunity to participate in programs that prepare them for jobs.” – Judith Ware, Office Track student

2. José Trujillo wishes Byte Back a happy birthday and feliz cumpleaños!

3. “I am especially proud that Byte Back is offered to adults. Many programs are geared toward young people, not even considering that there are adults that might want to further their education or get education but cannot afford it. So many adults feel hopeless as far as continuing education. Byte Back provides that hope and that helping hand to adults with a desire to better themselves.

“I am thankful and blessed for finding Byte Back and forever grateful for the opportunities presented to me that have allowed me to reach my goals of continuing my education.”

– Lisa Redmond, A+ Certification Program student

4. Nona Jones is grateful for the opportunity to take a class.

5. Gracias for the opportunity for computer education from our class of PC for Beginners in Spanish! (with subtitles)

6. “It gives people a better understanding of computers and how they operate.” – Antwanetta Perry, Office Track student

7. “Even though there are several people in class, it’s like one-on-one instruction. Being retired, this is a way to learn something new. Happy 18th birthday!” – Sheila Hutchins, Office Track student

9. “I choose to come to class at Byte Back because the staff members are approachable, engaging, full of smiles and personality, and seem like they will go out of their way to help you. It’s true!” – Lonte Adams, Internet & Core Computing Certification (IC3) student
