Web Site: http://ycdl.ph-int.org/


The Tvoy Kurs/Your Course Project, in partnership with Microsoft Russia, provided training in basic and job-related computer skills with the goal of increasing employability and marketability among underserved and disadvantaged populations in Russia. E-skills and the advantages technology knowledge provides in competing for jobs and work-place advancement are particularly valuable assets for those who want and need to improve their economic prospects in our increasingly knowledge-based economy. The Project was implemented through the network of Сomputer Literacy centers throughout Russia  launched in partnership with libraries, colleges and universities and non-profit organizations with the assistance of regional and municipal authorities. Each center gave e-skills training in the Microsoft Digital Literacy and Unlimited Potential Curricula, free Internet access and access to Digiral Literacy Course; as well as training in capacity-building themes, in order to give participants marketable skills and stimulate community participation.
