WorkSource centers across Washington have experienced an increase in customer demand for resource room computers and technology resources. With an increase in demand for computers comes an increase in the number of users who lack basic computer skills necessary for an effective job search. Many employment services offered within Washington’s WorkSource system require that individuals possess the skills necessary to navigate through essential computer-based systems. Additionally, the requirements of the global economy and the computer age require that individuals are computer literate.
AmeriCorps members will assist WorkSource customers who need computer and technological support in an effort to improve the technological literacy for Washington’s job seekers.
