United Way of Utah Countyjamiel@unitedwayuc.orgDigital Inclusion Community Leaders Meeting5/10/2017In honor of National Digital Inclusion Week, the United Way of Utah County invites community leaders to learn about digital inclusion in Provo.

While Provo has one of the highest rates of home internet connection in the country, this can make it even harder for low-income residents without an internet connection or basic digital literacy skills to find local services, search for a job, stay in contact with their children's schools, and be civically engaged.

There are several innovative projects and resources in the works that we can't wait to share (and this is the fastest way to learn about them)!

5 Minute (or Less) Lightening Presentations:

- What is Digital Inclusion?
- How the United Way of Utah County is Approaching Digital Inclusion (Jamie Littlefield)
- How Provo City is Approaching Digital Inclusion (Allison Lew)
- How the Provo Library is Approaching Digital Inclusion (Carla Gordon)
- How Faith-Based Volunteers are Approaching Digital Inclusion (TBD)
- How Google Fiber is Approaching Digital Inclusion (Jacob Brace and Maliana Tupou)

If you are a community leader interested in joining, please email: jamiel@unitedwayuc.org

SAHAmunirih_jester@saha.orgSan Antonio First Digital Inclusion Alliance Meeting5/12/2017600 Soledad Street San Antonio, TX 78205During the past few months we've made great strides in building our capacity to address the digital divide, a gap that is preventing many San Antonians from participating and contributing to our community and our economy. We've produced a first draft of our Digital Inclusion Strategies Plan, held an initial city-wide summit, and brought a full-time VISTA on board to expand our ConnectHome program.

Perhaps most importantly, we are creating the San Antonio Digital Inclusion Alliance so that the entire community can become engaged and develop the leadership necessary to continue our progress. We must ensure that every San Antonian has the skills and the chance to become connected to opportunity, and we can't do that unless we tackle digital literacy. With greater confidence in areas such as keyboarding, familiarity with basic technology and even internet safety, more San Antonians can participate fully in everything that 21st century technology offers.
