CCNYPA Drexel University (Dornsife Digital) VISTA
The digital divide is a persistent obstacle to work, education, and public life: think of all the essential tasks we do online, like applying for jobs; applying for benefits and services; communicating with local, state, and federal representatives; selling products as an entrepreneur; banking; staying in touch with family, etc. The VISTA will assist Drexel and partners in assessing, creating and implementing tools that support children, caregivers, seniors, and other adults through technology services/platforms, access to low-cost broadband, training, and additional programs based on findings of Y1 project. The VISTA will help create/strengthen opportunities with Drexel for low-income individuals to develop workforce knowledge and skills that will meet the needs of employers while also supporting the expanded digital needs of students.
