Connect Nevada Celebrates National Digital Literacy Day!

By CNV Staff

Today is National Digital Literacy Day and we’re excited to be joining others in celebrating the progress being made to foster broadband adoption and Internet training in communities across the United States, but more work needs to be done!

Millions of Americans are not online because they lack the skills and training. In fact, 15% of non-adopters say that they would subscribe to broadband if they had the skills to use the Internet.

We're joining with other organizations to help Americans get online. Today is serving as the official kick-off for the “Everyone On” campaign. The campaign seeks to provide all Americans access to free digital literacy training, both online and in libraries. The campaign is being hosted by Connect 2 Compete and the National Ad Council.

“The Nevada Every Community Online program focuses on improving broadband access, adoption, and use across the entire state,” said Connect Nevada State Program Manager Lindsey Niedzielski. “Our ECO program supports the new national initiative by offering Nevadans a free way to learn life-changing digital skills through their local library or computer training center and then be rewarded with discounted broadband services and a chance at a free computer.”

You can help us! 

  • Tell others that you support efforts to get all Americans online. Follow Everyone On on Facebook and Twitter spread the word using #EveryoneOn.
  • If you know someone who needs training sign them up for our free Every Community Online training curriculum.
