In 2012, The Neighborhood Hub will focus on assisting community members in closing the digital divide by presenting a year-long series of computer classes, labs and interactive lessons a variety of computer programs, applications and the use of the latest computer hardware and new technology.
The Hub’s executive director Julianne Leersson says, “Diverse and underserved communities in the Twin Cities are years behind in the use of computer applications, current technology and some of the simple and basic uses of a computer that can help students, small business and community development organizations raise productivity and possibly raise their employee potential index. 2012 presents a challenge to train community members on basic computer systems. This includes entry-level computer use and information distribution for small businesses and community development agencies. The Hub’s Pick One, Learn One, Teach One Series is set to embed top-of-mind knowledge while encouraging participants to teach a friend, co-worker or family member their newly learned skill.”
