Mobile Computer Lab for On-site Training
Digital Life Skills class at Blue Hills Community Services
Connecting for Good focuses on helping people in under-resourced Kansas City neighborhoods become productive users of the Internet. Along with regularly scheduled training sessions in our community technology centers, the digital life skills classes are conducted at various locations throughout the city. In 2014, nearly 250 class sessions were held in ten different locations in Kansas City’s urban core, reaching 2,000 people. With a mobile computer lab of Chromebooks and laptops, this hands-on guided learning experience is brought to libraries, schools, churches and other community facilities.
Family Computer Day at the Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council
We are working with a number of community groups to sponsor several Family Computer Days in the coming year. These events are promoted by the groups that host them for their communities and for the individuals to whom they provide services. Connecting for Good staff and volunteers teach people from their community. At the same time, we bring a trailer full of refurbished computers. Those who who complete two training sessions and are eligible can take home a personalized, high quality refurbished desktop PC for just $75.00 that same day.
If your church, school or community organization is interested in hosting our trainers for an event, please contact us.
Thanks for your interest and support.
