AFN has partnered with TARA to lead this initiative.

At the recent meeting, participants were asked to select action oriented sub-groups centered around the following objectives:

  1. Offer Train the Trainer Skills-based workshops
  2. Coordinate with TechHire: Workforce Development Initiative
  3. Create Digital Literacy Standards
  4. Develop a Standardized Client Survey


The groups will meet over the next year to achieve these initiatives which were identified in Phase I of DECA as short-term priorities.  If you are interested in participating, click on the following for more information:
