Access to technology, visibility and voice are crucial for all people, and especially for poor and working people who have historically been silenced and otherwise spoken for by an unrepresentative mainstream media. MMP conducts regular video, radio and computer trainings for workers, immigrants, youth and community leaders; runs a network of public computer centers; and organizes around media justice issues that affect our communities.
Computer Center Locations
Free and open to the public, MMP’s six computer centers (also known as "KEYSPOTs") provide technology access and skills training for young people, families, workers and community leaders – both to meet daily needs and to share the stories that connect and cohere communities and galvanize civic engagement. Trainings include basic computer skills, internet literacy, job-readyness, college access and digital storytelling.
Come visit any of the computer centers during open access hours.
To sign up for classes, workshops and trainings call 215-821-9632 or sign up online.

These centers are part of KEYSPOTS, a citywide effort funded by federal stimulus money to improve internet access and computer/internet skills in low-income, underserved communities. Why is this so important and exciting for Philadelphia? Because in this digital age, when computer and Internet access are necessities, 41% of Philadelphians do not have access. KEYSPOTS aims to tackle this problem head-on.
