An organization that offers free computer and Internet training to adults staged graduation ceremonies this week for 50 people who recently completed the program.

The organization, Community Union, used computer labs at four Ontario schools to conduct the training, waiting until after regular school hours to begin instruction, said Larry Ortega, the organization’s president and founder. “We’re helping the schools offer more robust programs for their parents, particularly around technology,” Ortega said. “There’s all kinds of side benefits.” The courses consist of 40 hours of instruction over 10 weeks. They are offered free of charge, funded by Community Union and host school districts, Ortega said. “It’s free to the parents, and the school district and our organization combine to make it free for the parents,” Ortega said.
