Our Target Audiences

Who is this Program Trying to Reach?

Although many Rhode Islanders have the education, experience, and resources to allow them to keep up with the rapid pace of technological change, many others struggle to get started or to access computers. While the Digital Literacy Program will provide all Rhode Islanders resources for lifelong learning, it is particularly aimed at:

  • People with disabilities
  • The unemployed and underemployed
  • Low-income individuals and families
  • Individuals and families with limited English skills
  • Senior citizens

The Importance of a “Sense of Community”

Many organizations are contributing to this effort by providing computer labs as site locations for classes or staff as instructors. Even if your organization can’t contribute trainers or a computer lab, it can still help promote digital literacy courses and encourage Rhode Islanders to attend trainings.

Community organizations, government agencies, businesses, libraries, adult education agencies, volunteer groups, and any other organization that understands the importance of digital literacy to our lives and economy can help to spread the word. There is no limit to the number of groups that can help, and no contribution is too small.
