The City of Fort Wayne'€™s Net Literacy iTeam, Urban League volunteers and Fort Wayne Community Schools students tonight led a training session to teach adults basic Internet skills.

The program is intended to empower young people to increase computer availability and Internet literacy for underserved youth, families and seniors. Over the past few months, nearly 200 used computers have been collected as part of a communitywide computer drive and are being refurbished to be used by those in need in the community.

The Verizon Foundation has donated $20,000 to help develop Fort Wayne'€™s Net Literacy program. Additional partners include Adaptive Micro-Ware and Asset Forwarding.

Last year, Mayor Graham Richard created iTeams as a way to use technology to promote innovation and investment.

The Fort Wayne Urban League hosted tonight'€™s training session.
