Public computer centers in Forsyth County, North Carolina, are struggling to meet increased demand and enable
residents to access current online applications with outdated equipment. WinstonNet’s Enhanced Community
Computer Centers project proposes to upgrade computers and provide new equipment for 38 public computer
centers with the greatest need.
The project plans to offer health information, community outreach services, and training to youth, unemployed
minority populations, senior citizens, people with disabilities, and Native Americans. The computer centers plan
to engage the area’s Spanish-speaking population by providing instruction in Spanish, including computer
training and advanced English as a Second Language learning programs.
