The Learning Source launched its Digital Navigation Program in 2023.

During the 2023-2024 program year our team is proud to have helped more than 710 community members improve their digital literacy and plan to reach more than 1,000 community members by September 2024. We distributed 100 free computers to those who most needed them, helping to bridge the digital divide and empower these individuals with essential tools for education, job searches and maintaining connections with loved ones.

Our program has had a profound impact on the daily lives of the people we’ve served, enabling them to participate more fully in society and access vital resources that were previously out of reach.

Our goals for the 2024-25 program year include the distribution of more than 100 free computers at our esteemed partner organization host sites. We aim to help more than 1,500 people enhance their digital literacy and create ongoing opportunities and pathways for continued learning.

Student Stories

Yuliana wanted a computer to help her learn English and study for her citizenship. She qualified for a computer through our program. Using the computer, Yuliana and her husband studied hard and earned their U.S. citizenship. Yuliana continues to utilize her computer skills – she has developed her own website to promote her jewelry business. Her husband Geraldo used the computer to study for and earn his carpenters license.

Aimee, a digital navigator at The Learning Source, is helping teach a digital skills class to Boston School P-8 parents. The parents speak five different languages. This is one of Boston's most well attended parent programs which is a testimony to excellent teachers and the need in the community. A Ugandan parent said recently, "This community space is my home."
