Technology touches every aspect of our lives and impacts our access to healthcare, education, employment, goods and services. Internet connectivity and digital competency skills are essential in ensuring that every member of our society has equal access to opportunities and resources.
DigitalC’s empowerCLE+ program seeks to not only provide a reliable, affordable and sustainable broadband connection for Cleveland’s un and under-connected communities, but the necessary digital skills training to ensure that our community members are capable of and fully empowered to participate in society. Continuing the work of our former digital skills building program, ReStart, and utilizing similar technology from our previous Connect the Unconnected (CUC) initiative, DigitalC will be launching the empowerCLE+ pilot in June 2019.
Equipping our communities with technology, education and access is vital in ensuring an equitable future for everyone.
