Blackfeet Achievement Center
In partnership with the Native American Chamber of Commerce and with funding from IBM, SeniorNet is leading the technology training components of ‘Hope and Harmony for Humanity’, a grant-based initiative designed to bring computer technology access and education to low-income and remote Native American reservations across the nation. The Blackfeet Achievement Center was the first to open through this initiative in 2006.
