There are more than 300,000 households in Metro-Atlanta that lack broadband access. This means that many children are not able to do their homework more effectively or that unemployed individuals are not able to look for jobs when libraries or other public computer labs are closed.
Increasingly, access to the internet and digital literacy skills play a major role in opening new doors to opportunity for our students and many others in metro-Atlanta. Through the Google Digital Inclusion Fellowship, Literacy Action offers free introductory and advanced computer classes. In addition, we are building a digital literacy curriculum which can be used in the community through our partner organizations.
- Introductory Classes
- Monday through Thursday
- Advanced Classes
- Mondays and Wednesdays
Literacy Action’s Digital Literacy Program links adults to technology and teaches them the skills needed to use technology as a tool to self-sufficiency.
