Until a few months ago, she could type using Microsoft Word — and that was it. “Now I can do a lot of stuff,” said Stephanie, a junior at Modesto High School. “I can make my own accounts, video edit, upload pictures.” In fact, Stephanie is so proficient that she teaches adults how to use computers as part of the Digital Connectors program, which trains teens in computer skills, then helps them pass on their knowledge.

Clients of the Stanislaus Literacy Center, which serves adults who want to improve their reading skills in order to land jobs, take high school equivalency exams or otherwise enhance their lives.
