A group of 19 teens will train to become ambassadors for bringing technology to the elderly, minorities and the poor. Latin Americans United for Progress director Roberto Jara said on Tuesday his organization received a grant to create a Digital Connectors team in the Holland area. The students will study leadership, teaching, computer hardware and networking in order to later teach others to use technology. “We’re looking for volunteer opportunities. … We would like to go into nursing homes, actually,” said Carmen Ruffino, program instructor for the Digital Connectors team. Another potential project for the teens could be acting as technology tutors for parents or community members.
