The global pandemic has made it clear that everyone needs home internet access. But how do you do this when the people your nonprofit works with are low income and can’t afford a device or internet costs? And how do you provide digital skills training to new users when you can’t sit next to them?
These are monumental challenges. Even with vaccines, the virus is still spreading, and older adults, young children, and our immunocompromised neighbors are still at risk.
In this course, you’ll discover how you and your organization can make a difference in the lives of homebound individuals by helping them get fully connected to the internet. You’ll learn ways to increase digital literacy, plan for getting people more connected at home, and launch and evaluate your program.
