Conard House offers one-on-one computer and internet training courses to residents. Digital access and computer literacy enables residents to gain access to important information, such as healthcare, counseling, job skills training, finances, support services, educational games and social connections.
This 5-week course covers all the basics of using an Android smartphone. Some topics covered are basic phone settings, using the internet, connecting to the Wi-Fi, operating systems, home screens, using the camera, applications, and phishing emails and scams. The instructors take a few minutes every session to field questions about the use of the device or any advanced features that the clients might be interested in learning more about. At the end of the five weeks, all participants receive their new free smartphone, prepaid phone service (3 months), and a certificate of completion.
