Vision: For every Ohioan to be able to fully participate in online government, search and apply for jobs online, understand the risks and benefits to internet finance, connect with family online, and protect personal information in the digital age.
Need: In a recent survey of Ohio libraries conducted by the nonprofit OCLC, 53% of rural libraries report that they are the only place in their community that provides free internet access and digital literacy training. In this same survey, lack of staff was cited as the number one reason that libraries of all sizes were unable to provide digital literacy classes.
Who We’re Looking For: Flexible, caring individuals committed to community service delivered through computer classes, one-on-one computer assistance, outreach, and volunteer recruitment in rural Ohio libraries. Experience with tutoring, teaching or working in public libraries is an extra plus.

ü Pride of Making a Difference to a community in need.
ü Modest living allowance and an Educational Award upon completion.
