Intro to Computers Classes
for the Low-Literate Adult

 

THANKS TO SEED MONEY FROM CHRIST CHURCH CATHEDRAL (Cincinnati), a few years ago. 

Lack of community access to computers and skill attainment, sometimes called the “digital divide,” fosters economic and social inequality. With today’s emphasis on technology, generational poverty will certainly abide.  Those whom we serve cannot afford computers or monthly internet bills. Low level readers cannot manage the pace and lack of personal support in library or job skills training computer classes (and our students tell us this). So they experience decreased opportunities for jobs, information gathering, etc. The literally “disconnected” are also figuratively disconnected from fully participating in society. Confidence and self-esteem take a hit due to the social exclusion they endure (and our students tell us this), especially with today’s emphasis on social media.
