Overcoming the Digital Divide in Detroit

 

Within the next 10 years, 80% of all jobs in the United States will require not only digital literacy, but digital fluency. Digital fluency in Detroit is a daunting goal, especially with almost 40% of households not being connected to the Internet. Best Buy has recognized the need for technology and training and has generously awarded LifeBUILDERS with the “Closing the Technology Circuit in Detroit” Grant. With the grant and the community partnership of Snapshot Design, LifeBUILDERS will be able to equip the Regent Park Community with access to current technology tools (computers, printers, software, etc), training  and skill development. God has provided abundantly.
