About Connections for All (C4All)
In 2006 C4All (C4All) helped CTCs (Community Technology Centers) to better serve people with disabilities. Funded by the AT&T Foundation, C4All was a collaboration with CTCNet and the Alliance for Technology Access (ATA). YES was one of only 14 CTCs nationwide receiving a C4All accessibility grant and the only one based in rural America. Additional staff support was and is being provided by the CTCNet VISTA Project. Activities made possible by C4All include:
