White House officials, along with the State of California, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and impreMedia publisher Monica Lozano launched Club Digital last week — which is being called the nation’s most comprehensive bilingual Internet training program.
 
With experts saying the digital divide disproportionately affects Hispanic families, the club offers 30 days of bilingual, interactive lessons on the Internet. The program is set to run through August.
 
“Preparing all students for success demands we ensure no child is left offline — at home or at school,” said Tom Torlakson, California State Superintendent of Public Instruction. “Club Digital helps students as well as parents gain Internet skills that boost classroom learning, knowledge, and workplace readiness.”
 
In early 2012, Club Digital plans to expand nationally to reach an estimated 9.4 million Hispanics, as the initiative seeks to educate the community on the many educational, economic, and social benefits associated with accessing the Internet.
 
 “Going online is no longer a luxury,” said Monica Lozano, publisher and chief executive officer of impreMedia — which bills itself as the nation's leading Hispanic news and information company — and founder of Club Digital. “The Internet is now the essential tool of modern life — the gateway to jobs, education, government, financial, and healthcare services, and much more.”
