This place is incredible! They make use of an overly stressed waste stream to deliver internet ready PCs to disadvantaged communities. Just a few hours of volunteering earns you an internet ready PC with a Free/Open Source operating system. I've volunteered some time here as well as donating my old electronics, and as a nonprofit they are well organized and focused on their mission. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking to make a positive impact/volunteer in their community, or just to unload their outdated electronic equipment.

I depend on Free Geek to recycle all my electronics. It gives me a good feeling to think that stuff will be reused or recycled. I don't know what I would do with it if not for Free Geek. They certainly are a valued service to the community. I have nothing but high praise and kudos for Free Geek.

Free Geek is a great place to learn about computers and Ubuntu. While Linux has much more to offer, Free Geek is one of the best places for an introduction.

I volunteer in the build program at free geek, and I love the concept. People in the build program help build computers, and get one of their own, along with education on computer hardware. People in the adoption program help sort computers and get a free computer. People in who need computers get them for very little. People that give computers find a way to easily dispose of old computers. It's beautiful hoe everyone wins. Having said that, the idea is poorly executed. The programs are run y people who don't have the faintest idea how to teach. The tests and lessons are pointless, and ask you about everything you DON'T need to know. Some of the staff are a little annoying as well.

If you are nerd and/or geek and you need or want a place to volunteer there is no better place in the portland metro area. You get to repair computers and help them get good homes or help recycle old tech to be environmentally conscious. This place is utterly fantastic.

Free Geek present a fairly noble and honest business model, but it would appear to come at the expense of achieving their full potential. The level of customer service was satisfactory, but they leave a lot of room for improvement. Overall, however, a good establishment.
