Connect2Compete: Check This Out!

If you haven’t already, check out Connect2Compete, an initiative to “help Americans access technology through three exciting offers: free digital literacy training, discounted high-speed Internet, and low-cost computers. To promote the work, Connect2Compete will create a national outreach campaign focused on the importance of technology to develop digital skills and find new opportunities.”

The section on Free Training does list public libraries—and if you offer computer training and your library isn’t listed, you can contact them to be added.  You may also want to check out the free resources on the site.

The outreach portion of the initiative has been piloted in San Diego, and is planned to expand to all 50 states.
