    Background Information: Get Connected San Benito County event is supported by the Central Coast Broadband Consortium that is working to educate and close the digital divide within the unserved and underserved communities in San Benito County. We are organizing a one day event that is focused on the education and adoption of the internet. We estimate that today there are only 35% internet usage in some neighborhoods; partly because the community has not had the opportunity to learn what the internet is about and have access to affordable connections to the Internet with relevant applications.

    Workshops & Resource Expo: We want to make this event filled with education about internet safety, public safety, digital literacy, education about the benefits of using the internet and outlets within the community that offer internet based services and/or resources.

    Educational Workshops:
    1. Healthcare
    2. Internet Safety
    3. Cyber Bullying
    4. Web Connection via Skype
    5. Online Banking: Spotting Fraud
    6. CMAP Video Production
    7. Digital Translation: Computer Literacy 101
    8. College Scholarship Research
    9. Office of Education align with program about Adult Literacy
    10. Importance of being on the Internet: Adults monitoring their kids

    Partners: Get Connected San Benito committee is funded in part by a grant for broadband awareness from the California Public Utilities commission and the Central Coast Broadband Consortium. Committee is made up of members from Youth Alliance, YMCA of San Benito County, Salud Para La Gente, San Benito Health Foundation, San Benito County IT, CMAP, San Bento Free Libraries, and MCBC
