In the past 100 years, technology has advanced more rapidly than it has throughout the existence of human beings. As we become more dependent on the technologies that exist, there creates a demand for innovation and an opportunity to thrive. Being at the forefront of the access to and sharing of information will be the key to fulfilling our mission.

ASTRO provides training and access to hardware and software that helps people learn job related skills. These skills have a focus on broadcast media. We also provide free access to the internet for job seekers during our office hours. By educating people on how to access and share information quickly and effectively, we can better communicate our message.
