JUNEAU — National 4-H Council and Microsoft are working together to close the connectivity gap in rural areas by empowering teens to bring technology and digital skills access to their communities.
The 4-H Tech Changemakers program puts teens at the forefront of creating change in their communities, empowering them to serve as digital ambassadors by having youths serve as teachers in their communities.
Through the course of their work 4-H teen leaders work with 4-H educators, broadband service providers, community members, civic leaders and Microsoft to help people gain the digital skills needed to benefit from technology and high-speed connectivity from online safety to computer basics to device training.
The Tech Changemakers are offering summer training Wednesday at 1 p.m. at the Dodge County Administration Building, 127 E. Oak St., Juneau. The lesson plans include: Searching for Digital Information and Strong Passwords.
