Community Digital Divide Initiative (CDDI)Digital Divide Image

JobLink's Community Digital Divide Initiative (CDDI) was developed to bridge the “Digital Divide,” specifically to help under-served communities gain low or no-cost access to computers, the Internet, and online training. JobLink serves as the hub of an online learning program and is increasing its ability to broadcast interactive learning and real-time training activities on a wide variety of subject matters.

Through JobLink, City of Alexandria residents are able to access this information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at their home computers or at various CDDI partnership locations within the community.

JobLink has developed partnerships with twenty-five (25) local, public and private agencies to form the Community Digital Divide Consortium (CDDC). These partnerships allow JobLink to increase its ability to:

  1. Assist in closing the technology gap by developing computer and information literacy.
  2. Expand outreach and service delivery.
  3. Fulfill and exceed short-term and long-term workforce development requirements. The long-range plan is to build additional training courses into this network as well as to expand service and support to other regional, national and international workforce programs.

Participants benefit from the CDDI program through the experience of using information technology as an educational and career development tool for both immediate employment and long-term lifelong learning needs. They will possess a higher degree of job skill proficiency through a diverse distributed learning program as well as a higher degree of computer abilities. Both are necessary to sustain employability in a highly competitive employment environment.
