LEARNER SPOTLIGHT: THADDEUS REESE
Inspired by a sister confined to her home because of a disability, Thaddeus became a CTN adult digital leaner. Armed with a new resume (and no doubt a “nailed” interview), he began a new employment opportunity at Transdev driving the elderly and people with disabilities to medical appointments and on other essential errands.

HOME CONNECT FEATURES CUSTOMIZED LEARNING PATHWAYS
Because of the stay-at-home directive stemming from the COVID-19 health crisis, CTN’s new Home Connect program will be engaging isolated seniors remotely to get them online. Once the senior has mastered basic tablet skills and internet safety concepts, they will continue their training with the support of a volunteer. CTN has created five specialized learning pathways and corresponding training activities that volunteers will use as a guide when working with the senior. Read more about these learning pathways on the CTN blog.
LEARNER SPOTLIGHT: ROBERT BARNWELL
Bob Barnwell was one of CTN’s earliest adult learners, first reaching out for digital training 11 years ago. After his training, he volunteered for CTN as a fundraiser before having to return to the workforce. In preparation, Bob received assistance from CTN in updating his resume, resulting in two jobs.

HOME CONNECT PROGRAM UPDATE
Created to provide an alternative training option for isolated seniors, our new Home Connect program continues to evolve. Even with some unexpected bumps along the road, CTN staff is making great progress and is anxious to begin interacting soon with new senior learners.

2020 CENSUS UPDATE AND REMINDER
