Seattle Goodwill & Seattle get recognition, funding from Comcast for digital literacy

Seattle Goodwill’s Job Training and Education Program has received $100,000 from Comcast to support additional development and instruction in digital literacy. The funding will also help train their English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) computer instructors and roll-out the new program across 10 job training sites.  Councilmember Bruce Harrell joined with Barbara “BG” Neighbors-Glass from Goodwill, Steve Kipp from Comcast and others to celebrate the grant and recognition of Seattle as a “Gold Medal” city which is helping to increase the number of low-income families receiving internet at home through Comcast’s Internet Essentials program.  See a video of the event and links to information from Comcast and Goodwill.
