Growth over 20 Years Culminates in Exciting Change
WASHINGTON, DC – Byte Back has been serving the Washington, DC community out of the same converted in Brookland for 20 years. This location has served the organization and its students well, but in the years since 1997, the staff size, student enrollments, and number of classes have grown substantially.
Byte Back is proud to compliment this growth by moving to a new state-of-the-art facility in summer 2017.
“We are thrilled to be moving into a space that fits who Byte Back is on the inside as an organization. It will outwardly reflect the modern, professional work we’re doing,” said Elizabeth Lindsey, executive director. “It will be a space our students are proud to study in, a place they feel safe in, and a space that encourages them to be professional and reach their career goals.”
Byte Back’s new location will be in the center of the communities served, just two blocks from Union Station. The new headquarters will be easily accessible to students, most of whom live in Wards 5, 6, 7, and 8.
In addition to housing the organization’s staff, the facility will include four computer classrooms, including one for IT certification testing, and Byte Back’s first-ever video production studio and virtual classroom. These facilities will assist Byte Back in providing top-notch free digital education opportunities to DC-area residents.
“We invite companies and individuals to share in this exciting time at Byte Back by investing in putting tech within reach,” Lindsey said. Those interested can find more information on how to get involved at byteback.org. We are confident that together we will continue to be successful in bringing premium tech training to marginalized communities.
