The National Digital Equity Center’s “Maine Digital Inclusion Initiative'' program was launched in 2018 and promotes and advocates for Digital Inclusion for Maine and its people. Included is the expansion of digital literacy services to traditionally underserved populations to provide job training/employment-related education as well as technology training to older adults. The program has engaged and trained digital literacy instructors to provide computer skills/digital literacy instruction to adult learners throughout Maine.
