Cruz One is a volunteer organization which provides technical support to our Santa Cruz County community during crisis such as the Covid-19 or Coronavirus outbreak. Our goal is to facilitate remote access for students and workers in an effort to minimize the impact of mandated quarantines.

Our first priority is to enable our educational system to provide remote based learning. This includes technology support for our K-12 schools and their teachers and students, such as enabling video based training.

Our second priority is to enable our community to work remotely. Many small businesses in our community are not equipped to transition and support remote work.

All groups face various challenges in our region ranging from lack of sufficient internet connections, lack of cell phone coverage, and other technology issues. You can read more about how it works. We think we’ve built a repeatable model, here is how we built this.
