Bridging the Digital Divide addresses the need to provide computer and technology skills to the under-served as well as offering assistance in improving the quality of life of the elderly by helping them connect to a wealth of online services.
The Computer Learning Center’s purpose is to use proven computer-based technology to address the educational needs of seniors who may find themselves unprepared for the challenge of the digital age. The Center will serve a diverse, disadvantaged, under-served, and underutilized community. The intent is to provide a resource through which community resident can become “technically advantaged” members of society. It is designed to both prevent community members from becoming furthered disadvantaged, and to supply a means for helping them overcome existing disadvantages.
