Washington, PA— Blueprints has received a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry to launch a new Digital Literacy Program in Greene County.

This program is designed to help residents become comfortable with common computer applications in order to develop employability and job seeking skills. Greene County residents can participate in the Digital Literacy Program through individual or group sessions and in-person or virtually.

All sessions will be facilitated by a PA-Certified Teacher and include lessons in:

  • Computer Basics: Learn how to browse the internet for job searching, establish a Google Account and develop typing skills.
  • Job Seeking: Determine a career path, develop a resume, learn how to apply for jobs online and enhance interview skills.

Sessions will be available at Blueprints’ office located at 58 East Greene Street in Waynesburg. Other sessions will be held within the community, including at public housing sites.

Residents who participate in the program will be able to borrow Chromebooks in order to participate in virtual sessions. Blueprints will also connect them to other community resources and internet options so that individuals can access computer tools and resources in the future.
