AT&T Kentucky grant provides computers for YouthBuild
“Students will use the computers for math and writing, as well as for digital literacy training that will help them apply for jobs. It also allows them to practice the online GED test.
Angela Clayton, 19, was one of the students at the computer lab on Friday. She is participating in a digital fluency class organized by Ideas 40203, a nonprofit organization that describes itself a contemporary art chamber of commerce.
Clayton said she and other students are working to build a mobile app for YouthBuild that will provide a platform for volunteer information and service activities.
At first, she said, she wasn’t very interested in learning to code. But now she loves it.
Students in the digital-fluency class have mastered basic HTML, she said, and now are learning CSS and graphic design.”
