Nonprofits Tackle the Digital Divide During COVID

About this event
The pandemic forced us all to make major changes in 2020. Because of the shelter-in-place order, many of us were forced to live our lives online rather than outside our homes. We worked, went to school, and saw our doctors all online. However, thousands of our Central Texas neighbors lacked home internet access, lacked devices, and/or lacked the digital skills to make this transition on their own. This is where the nonprofit sector stepped up and made an impact.
During this webinar, you will meet spokespeople from five organizations representing various issue areas such as K-12 and adult education, youth development, workforce development, and older adults experiencing isolation. The following guests will discuss what their organizations have done and continue to do to assist their communities in gaining home access.
- Paola Silvestre, United Way for Greater Austin
- Griselda Valerio, Austin Community College
- Matt Stawicki , American Youthworks
- Paty Sesma, AUTM
- Suzanne Anderson, AGE of Central Texas
- Kami Griffiths, Community Tech Network, Moderator
