As the City of Los Angeles plans for a future filled with technological innovations that will lead to new ways of interacting and new modes of service delivery, we want to make sure Angelenos are empowered to use technology to access city and other services, apply for jobs, connect with healthcare providers, engage with community, family and friends, as well as enjoy social activities. Supporting GoDigital! LA’s digital literacy program, will help under-connected Angelenos learn how to use their technology tool of choice to become an active participant in the digital economy.
The $100K prize will support our Digital Inclusion work, specifically the expansion of Digital & Data Literacy programming to Angelenos in underserved communities. Funding will support educational programs to equip under-connected Angelenos with the skills to actively engage with online and application driven City and other services. The education will be designed to ‘meet people where they are’, with respect to how they are currently using technology to gain online access.
