About the Alliance

“I helped a library patron fill out a job application. This experience stood out because it reminded me that not everyone has the opportunity to pick up certain skills and made me want to play my little part in bridging the digital skills gap however I can.” – Jane Ullah, Tech League Volunteer

Utah Communities Connect endeavors to bring awareness and action to our communities concerning information communication technologies around access, education, and devices. The alliance members collaborate on a mission to coordinate locally tailored solutions to address digital inequities.

Goals

  • Create a digital inclusion network for individuals and organizations that allows for cross-sector collaboration and coordination of resources and information.
  • Determine digital equity for Utah. Using research and assessment, identify opportunities for access to broadband, devices, and digital literacy training, and address those needs.
  • Become a voice and bring awareness to community members and stakeholders that could become digital inclusion advocates and changemakers.
