Participants graduate today from Delaware program that expands access to the internet

A graduation celebration is being held today for Delawareans who took part in Neighborhood Networks, a program designed to address what’s known as “the digital divide.” 

The program is a series of computer classes which brings computer education to Wilmington neighborhoods.  Participants get instruction in small groups and learn internet access, how to use Excel spreadsheets for budgeting and personal finance, how to research benefits online, and more.  Neighborhood Networks gets a visit from Governor Jack Markell this afternoon in Wilmington.
