The latest Pew Internet report shows that 15% of people in the United States still don’t access the Internet at home. The number jumps to 25% for low income and 33% for those without a high school diploma. For some, their lack of access is economic, but with an increase in low-cost options, this is less of an issue. Others lack digital literacy skills or don’t understand how the Internet is relevant to them.
This is where we come in. Nonprofits, libraries, and community-based organizations are on the front lines of bridging the digital divide, but they don’t always have the resources or staff capacity to address the need. This webinar will highlight best practices from across the country to help you:
- Understand what leading agencies have done to raise awareness and increase demand for digital literacy training
- Identify the key partners you should engage to assist in your outreach efforts
- Develop incentive programs to increase participation and motivate learners
