NTIA Increases Digital Literacy in the San Bernardino Community

The Housing Authority of San Bernardino, in partnership with the Career Institute National Federation Center, is using a 12-week workforce training program to improve digital literacy among low-income residents, and teach basic computer skills and online job search techniques. The Housing Authority is also hosting job training classes and job search/resume workshops at its computer centers, teaching participants interviewing skills, and best practices for filling out online applications.

Additionally, the Housing Authority supports computer labs across various community centers in the San Bernardino City Unified school district. Operated by the Top Flight Education and Sports Organization, the computer labs are open Monday through Thursday afternoon to assist children with homework and other school-related projects. All of these Housing Authority programs are made possible by funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration.
