Nonprofit Leaders Unite to Bridge Digital Divide

Nonprofit Leaders Unite to Bridge Digital Divide Silas Baisch

More than 30 nonprofit and community leaders gathered at the South Burlington Public Library on December 1st to discuss digital inequity and launch the Microsoft TechSpark partnership in Vermont. The event was hosted by Williston-based nonprofit Technology for Tomorrow. Enrollment is now open for free digital literacy courses to be offered in 2024. Microsoft TechSpark is a program that aims to bridge the digital divide by providing free courses to those in need. The 10-week basic digital literacy and 10-week introduction to AI courses will be offered January-March at the South Burlington Public Library. The courses are free and participants will come from local nonprofit organizations.

While the Microsoft TechSpark program is a great initiative to bridge the digital divide, it is important to remember that it is only a small step towards solving the larger issue of digital inequity. Access to technology is only part of the problem, as there are many other factors that can contribute to digital inequality. It is important to continue to look for ways to make technology more accessible and to address the underlying issues that lead to digital inequity.
