About the
Boulder Community Network

BCN is the non-profit sector ambassador to the world of information technology and the Internet. In a world where technology has become the focus, BCN provides an often missing key ingredient: the people. BCN people open windows to the world for senior citizens as they patiently teach them how to surf the net. They help non profit agencies redesign the way they do business. And they provide information for real people about real community issues.
