Digital Inclusion

Computers are everywhere today. We use them to shop, bank, pay bills, keep in touch, find jobs, and watch our favorite shows. In this day and age computers and access to the internet are essential to functioning in society. For many having a computer and home internet are still luxuries they can’t afford. This gap between the amount of computers in society and their absence in many low-income homes is called the digital divide.

Digital Inclusion at United Way of Utah County is dedicated to closing the digital divide. 

We strive to make Utah County digitally inclusive in three areas: 1. Access to technology; 2. Access to the internet; 3. Knowledge and literacy for using the technology.


Computer Help Labs

The Computer Help Labs are available to help anyone increase their computer skills. Patrons of the labs have learned to use email, social media, create resumes in Word, and budgets in Excel, among many other things. Each lab is staffed with dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers that provide one-on-one assistance. Whether you’ve never used a computer before, want to learn a new skill or program, or just need help with the new phone you got the Computer Help Labs are here for you!

Low-income adults can receive computers by completing 10 hours of time at one of the Computer Help Labs. If you are interested in participating in the Adopt-a-Computer program you can contact us at  at 801-691-5385 or by coming in to any of our Computer Help Lab locations. The computers given come from donations and are wiped and cleaned before being given out. Donate a computer now.
