Partner Onsite Classes Program
All of our 40+ digital skills classes are available in an online, interactive format. With the help of community partners such as libraries, adult education programs, and other community programs, people can now participate in our classes in-person at a host location in their community. All it takes to bring any, or all, of our digital skills classes to a community is a conference room to project a NDEC instructor to the participants in the room, and one or more individuals at the host location to serve as an NDEC Volunteer Class Facilitator. All classes are free to Maine locations!
Each Partner can choose as many of NDEC’s scheduled classes as they wish to host at their location as long as they have a Class Facilitator who can be there to manage the “Zoom in” of the instructor and facilitate class attendance and participation. Class size is limited to no more than 10 participants, but each location can set their own class size.
NDEC Class Facilitators
Class facilitators do not need to know the digital skills topic our instructors teach. We provide training during the NDEC Partner Onsite Class Program Orientation sessions. In addition, NDEC provides each organization with a unique login to a partner portal where you can choose classes and download participation reports. All who assist in delivering our services – whether they are NDEC volunteers or your staff/volunteers – must agree to the NDEC Code of Conduct and Confidentiality Agreement and pass a background check. After the initial orientation, your organization can determine which digital skills classes you would like to host at your facility.

Join a Partner Onsite Class Meetup
Starting in October of 2022, we have scheduled online “MeetUps” of current and potential NDEC Partner Onsite Class Programs. In these meetups, we will share new digital skills classes and initiatives, provide a forum for current partners to share strategies for successful onsite classes, as well as an opportunity for potential partners to ask questions and hear success stories.
