The Digital Navigator project at RUSHVILLE – Open Resource at 103 N. Main Street will continue in 2023, with a focus on bridging the digital divide for local residents.
Open Resources does this by offering free computers (refurbished Chromebook laptops), computer-related workshops, and one-on-one technology-related help/advice.
This Digital Navigator project, launched in 2021 with a grant from the Rush County Community Foundation, aims to make communities more digitally inclusive.
To reach this goal, The Open Resource has provided over 160 tablets, laptops and desktop computers to local residents for free in 2022. In addition, we have conducted various computer-related training workshops and support sessions for over 250 people to get them up and running with these devices. 2022.
To continue and hopefully enhance the computer-related technology opportunities available, Open Resources needs your support. This might be donating an old tablet or laptop computer that you no longer use.
Open Resources is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) and welcomes cash donations.
In addition to computer-related learning opportunities, there are plenty of K-12 homework help sessions and free books.
