Digital Divide

“The idea of the Digital Divide refers to the growing gap between the underprivileged members of society, especially the poor, rural, elderly, and handicapped portion of the population who do not have access to computers or the internet; and the wealthy, middle-class, and young Americans living in urban and suburban areas who have access.” Stanford University.

Recently we have developed and introduced introductory computer instruction to the locals of Youngstown at no cost to them. We currently focus our instruction on Windows based computers and use of Microsoft Applications and Software such as Word. We plan to further expand this service by providing instruction on Chrome OS and Mac OS. We also intend to include other Microsoft Office suites in the future. Attendees of our program also provide input to improve our program.

In an effort to expand our reach, OHC has collaborated with other agencies that include OCCHA, Oh Wow!, and Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership. We have currently expanded our classes to OCCHA’s location and hope to expand our reach even further in the future. We currently plan to have our classes monthly over a three-week period for the foreseeable future.
