Digital Corps Member
 
 
 
The ability to use technology directly impacts full participation in society. According to the National Digital Inclusion Alliance, Kansas City, Missouri, was one of the “Worst Connected Cities” in 2019 with over 30% of its population lacking cable, DSL, or fiber internet, evidence of the community's profound digital divide. This lack of access has a negative impact on an individual's ability to fully benefit from educational resources and economic opportunities. The Library's Tech Access department works with communities to provide digital skills training and troubleshooting for anyone from beginner to advanced levels. Digital Corps members will work as digital guides helping individuals navigate the digital landscape, obtain digital literacy skills, and find needed government benefits and community services. The Library's Digital Corps will provide instruction as well as resource navigation support and guidance.
