Community Tech Trust Project


The library is a collection of technology (laptops, tablets,mobile hotspots, and more) that will be made available to organizations that are providing accessible technology training to the community.

JOURNi’s mission is to empower individuals from high potential, urban communities by providing them with the tech education needed to compete and thrive in the local ecosystem.

Connecting our community

  • The Community Tech Trust (CTT) is a library of technology housed at the Marygrove Conservancy.

  • Facilitated by JOURNi and inspired by the work of many organizations in Detroit working to bridge the digital divide while investing in Detroit’s most valuable resource… its residents.

  • With an initial donation of 100 laptops from the Quicken Loans Community Fund, the Community Tech Trust began to make short term use laptops available in 2019.

Connect your organization

  1. Organizations with technology needs should submit the simple online request form below.

  3. All devices will be inspected by a CTT representative and the organization’s designee during both the prescheduled equipment pickup and drop off timeline.

Everyone in our community deserves access to technical education.

 In making technology available to local community organizations, we will collectively work to bridge the digital divide. From the inception of this program, over 1,000 event attendees have benefited from the resources of this program.

Detroit Creative Economy Census

Detroit has always been one of the most artistic and culturally significant cities, and both the Marygrove Conservancy and the Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship (Detroit ACE) aim to support and invest in the city’s creative industry, arts and culture organizations and artists.

All members of Detroit’s artist community are invited to complete the online census. Take a few moments to claim your creativity! Take the Detroit Creative Economy Census.
