Technology plays a powerful role in making our world a better place. Behind the progress, we found amazing people. Meet the Barrier Breakers.

Acer is committed to corporate social responsibility initiatives, and it is part of our mission to break down barriers between people and technology. In this mission we have found amazing  innovative people that are using  technology to make the world a better place. 

Too many people are living without reliable access to a computer, the internet, or technical literacy training, impacting the quality of their lives. As a global technology company, this problem hits close to home. That’s why we’re supporting and celebrating the Barrier Breakers: those on the front lines who are providing access and education to those who need it most.

Our first Barrier Breaker, Tech for Troops, breaks down barriers between people and technology by connecting veterans with the computers, training, and support they need. 

EPISODE 1

Tech for Troops

When looking for work, some veterans face roadblocks like not having a computer or technical skills. That’s where Tech for Troops comes in. The organization gathers used laptops that normally end up in landfills, refurbishes them, and gives them to veterans in need. It also offers computer literacy education.

"In today’s world, you have to have a computer to be able to apply for jobs." — Mark Casper, Executive Director, Tech for Troops
