Club Stride Digital Literacy Program

The Club Stride Inc. Digital Literacy Program represents a vital initiative to address the digital divide, empower youth disproportionately affected by the pandemic, and prepare them for success in the digital economy. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated a shift towards a world where jobs, education, health services, government interactions, and even social connections are increasingly dependent on digital technologies. The pandemic has shown us that digital access and literacy are no longer optional but essential for every member of the community.  It also exposed disparities within our community.  Racial inequities and the economic impact of COVID-19 have left many young workers at a disadvantage. Research indicates that digital literacy is crucial for youth in a post-pandemic society.  They must not only use digital technologies but also have the ability to select the right tools for the tasks at hand.

Teaching Digital Marketing Literacy is one of the steps we're taking to inspire change in our community. Our work empowers participants with the tools to get more involved digitally and to understand the key strategies that they can use to become successful in this ever-evolving world. 

We provide ongoing access to our full digital library of content for participants in our digital marketing training program.
