The Computer Education Program

Our modern world is rooted in the computer so you need the skills. The Literacy Volunteers of Southern Connecticut is turning on its computer just for you and offering a hands-on computer class and workshop designed for individuals to learn basic computer skills and become comfortable with using computers for personal use. Our program also may increase your chances of getting a job. Participants will learn how to search the web, open and manage an email account, read and send emails, search for documents, and attach documents to emails. It also will help you ‘join the conversation’ by engaging in social media. Participants will also learn how to use Microsoft Word to write documents.  All tutors and students (past and present) are invited.
