The “three-legged stool of Digital Inclusion” consists of Connectivity (internet access), Devices (access to digital devices), and Digital Skills (digital literacy). Here at the CARDBoard Project, we’ve taken those three legs and use them to guide our programs and initiatives.

Access to the internet and digital devices are important aspects of digital inclusion but the stool cannot fully stand without its third leg, digital skills. It is vital that guests have the digital skills necessary to use these digital devices and we help provide them with these skills through programs such as our Digital Skills Training Program. This program also sets up participants to find a job that will utilize their newly learned digital skills.

Digital Skills

We offer free digital skills training programs that cover the basics of Google Suite, financial literacy, job readiness, resume building and online safety. No prior computer experience is required. Our Digital Access Programs focuses on providing access to laptops, hotspots, unlimited data for 12 months, a Digital Backpack with tech accessories. As well as Tech Support.

Digital Skills for Families
The Digital Skills for Families program turns digital skills training into a family affair! DISD high school students and their legal guardians can enroll in the program as a pair (or more) and take digital skills training with us.

Digital Skills for Adults
A digital skill training program established to provide individuals with the essential skills to leverage technology for professional and personal advancement. Participants learn the basics of Microsoft Office and create their own resumés and online job searching profiles. The program is a collaborative effort to ensure participants are supported during and after the course.

Learn It, Earn It, Keep It
Clients who complete all program requirements may be eligible to keep the devices provided to them and remain digitally connected!
Clients must be referred from a qualified CBP non-profit partner.
