MEDIA ADVISORY: Public Housing Residents to Receive Free Computers
(Pictured above is a graduation class from a past digital literacy course.)
Twenty public housing residents from the Town of Chapel Hill will graduate from a computer skills training program and receive a free computer at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, at the Chapel Hill Public Library.
The course is a continuing collaboration between the Town and the Kramden Institute, a Durham non-profit. The goal of the course has been to teach public housing residents key job-seeking skills and related computer skills. The class has provided hands-on practice of real-world applications of the skills they have been learning.
Participants who complete the program will receive a free laptop computer, if they haven't received one from Kramden previously. The Town received a grant from Google Fiber to run this program.
