To address this need, the Urban League’s World of Web program offers both digital media skills and computer literacy training — at no cost!

The World of Web program, also known as ‘WOW’ began in 2021 with the purpose of offering a free digital skills computer training course to bring program participants up to speed with basic functionality of computer software/hardware and internet browsing capabilities that are required for life in the 21st century.

The World of Web program seeks to train program participants in the following areas of focus:

  • Basic Computer Navigation & Keyboarding
  •  Online Internet Browsing Short Commands
  • Job Search Mapping
  • Email Etiquette
  • Social Media Communication Skills
