The Digital Inclusion Fellowship recruits and trains emerging leaders in digitally divided communities. In our second cohort, 21 fellows were embedded in city host partners across 11 cities. Fellows implemented programs of new or expanded digital literacy training for adults.
Fellows developed a diverse array of digital literacy programs to meet the needs of their learners. Instruction was offered in languages including English, Somali, Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese; topics ranged from computer basics to online dating for seniors to online security to resume creating and job search. Fellows reached out to participants in their own spaces, including public housing properties, libraries, and community centers—and even a cupcake shop. By pairing the expertise of a national network with community, Fellows
gave relevant and accessible training.
Fellows have been recognized nationally as leaders in digital literacy and digital inclusion work. They were featured in and wrote for local media and national journals, and they’ve led trainings and presentations in regional and national conferences.VIEW THE FACT SHEETS (PDF, 6.9 MB)
