Digital Literacy Guiding Team

The Chicago Connected Digital Literacy Guiding Team is a cross-sector group that is acting as the glue for collaboration, serving and supporting the collective work of curating best in class digital resources tailored to meet the needs of Chicago Connected families. 

Starting in November, 2020, the Guiding Team has embarked on a human-centered process that includes the voices and serves the needs of people directly impacted by digital inequities in Chicago.
