Bridging the digital divide; Winston-Salem church to open WinstonNet computer lab

Janis Walker is ready to become more digitally savvy. At Whole Man Ministries, a church on Old Lexington Road in southeastern Winston-Salem, Walker recently put herself on the list for an eight-week basic computer course. "My grandsons have a touch-screen phone and they've showed it to me. I have some computer skills, but I haven't been around them for 10 years, and I want to refresh myself," said Walker, 63. That's the idea, said Kenneth Holly, a minister at the church.

The church's Bridging the Gap Community Center is accepting up to 25 people such as Walker for the basic computer course. The start date has not been set, but the course will begin next month, Holly said. Participants who complete the course will be eligible to buy a computer for as little as $25. Read more.

The program is part of an initiative by WinstonNet Inc. and other nonprofit organizations to bridge the digital divide. For information, click here. To enroll in a class, call 336-703-4138.
