The New York State Office for New Americans and CanCode Communities announced their free digital literacy program and advanced computer training for immigrants.
The NewAmericansCanCode program enables new Americans to acquire essential computer skills that will allow them to aspire to higher paying jobs. Students learn Microsoft Office, how to manage calendars and email, basic Internet safety skills, and basic computer use.
