IVCC sets up computer lab, courses in Streator


NT Staff




STREATOR — Illinois Valley Community College has partnered with the Streator Community Center to provide free public access to technology and computer training.

In July 2012, IVCC was awarded a $16,000 “Eliminate the Digital Divide” grant to increase access to computers and offer training for underserved communities. The overall goal for IVCC and Streator area partners is to expand access to computers and telecommunication technology to residents that otherwise would not have access on their own.

Last fall, IVCC donated and installed a lab equipped with nine computers, printer and wireless access in Streator. IVCC intern Elizabeth Smith staffs the Community Center lab at 202 S. Vermilion St. 12 hours a week.

Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity funded project will offer classes from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in Computer Basics, March 4 and 7; Welcome to Internet and Email, March 11 and 14, and Microsoft Word, March 18 and 21. The classes repeat in April and May.

For information or to volunteer, call (815) 224-0428 or (815) 224-0280 or e-mail jamie_gahm@ivcc.edu or gail_divan@ivcc.edu.
