A brief description of the many community engagement, community service, and member programs at TAGNW. For more information regarding each program, and for how you can participate, please refer to the specific program website.

Community Engagement Programs

TAGNW Community Engagement Programs focus on expanding awareness and influence of technology and education topics in our community, including Career Launch, Community Hub, Community Groups, Community Partners, Jobs Board, Testing, and Whatcom STEM.

Career Launch

TAGNW Career Launch is the close collaboration of community, education, and industry partners to create a purposeful workforce development strategy for the mutual benefit of all stakeholders. Educational Institutions work to improve programs and student outcomes with the input of Community and Industry Partners. Industry Partners work to improve recruiting, hiring, and training for their organization. Community Partners work closely with Education and Industry Partners to improve effectiveness and efficiency of programs, better understand Industry Partner needs, adapt Industry Partner needs to limitations of academia, and complement Career Launch with value-added community programs. The end result is an ecosystem supporting workforce development efforts and creating highly skilled candidates entering high wage and high demand careers.

TAGNW Testing is a collaborative program to collect internet connectivity information in our community to understand the existing availability and value of Internet services in our community, raise awareness of available services, and promote improvement of availability for those with little or no access. Internet connectivity is crucial for all communities to participate in modern society. Everything from learning to banking to entertainment is conveniently — and sometimes exclusively — available via the Internet, yet many in our community and around the world have little or no access. You can help by running our internet connectivity tests and encouraging others to do the same. Thank you!
