In-Person Digital Literacy Classes Resume
After waiting nearly 18 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person Digital Literacy Classes are back in session!
Digital Literacy Classes
Starting October 2021, Computer Reach will begin teaching Digital Literacy Classes with the Senior Companion Program at the Allegheny County Department of Human Services. We look forward to offering these services once again because we know that devices are useless if the people using them are not digitally literate. By providing a baseline of computer skills, including skills related to internet safety and emailing, we work to ensure that all participants are able to effectively operate their digital devices.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Computer Reach focused heavily on providing digital literacy training to adults in Southwestern Pennsylvania. In fact, our organization administered classes to 80 cohorts of adults from 2018 to early 2020.
What do our classes offer?
Our Digital Literacy Classes* are geared towards individuals who are interested in learning how to use a computer. Two of our most popular class topics include emailing and internet safety. While working with students, our instructors are patient and understanding of the fact that not everyone is comfortable using computers.
* All classes must be funded and scheduled at the organization level. While participants cannot sign up for classes directly, eligible individuals will be identified by partner organizations when classes are available.
