Since 1997, Mission: Ignite has existed to end the digital divide in Buffalo, WNY, and surrounding areas. Many people lack the resources necessary to purchase a computer or get the technical training needed to use them. At the same time, rapid technology change means that over 2 million tons of hazardous e-waste is created in the U.S each year. Mission: Ignite addresses this by refurbishing technology and providing STEM training to the Buffalo community and surrounding areas.
