Meet Matthew:

My name is Matthew Capece, and I have been a resident of Clinton for nearly my whole life. I have gone through the Clinton Public School system, in which I was actively involved/engaged in the community. I studied Secondary Education with a concentration in Spanish at the University of Connecticut and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2021. My goal is to be able to help everyone to the best of my ability and if unable to directly help, I will guide you to a source that will be able to help.

More about Tech Connection:

Tech Connection is a brand new program here in Clinton that aims to increase digital/technological literacy within the community. This program is primarily aimed towards anybody within the community that would like to learn more skills regarding the internet. This ranges anywhere from creating/writing emails, to conducting searches on the internet, to deleting apps/pictures off of your phone. Not only will this program contain classes, but it will also feature drop-in hours in order for people to be able to receive help. During these drop-in hours, people may come in and ask any basic tech questions (How can I delete apps off of my phone? How can I change the font in Word? etc). We are now in a world in which technology is a part of our everyday lives, and we want to help people within the community feel comfortable using it. The courses will be offered in English, as well as Spanish depending on the need.
