The Skills Center was incorporated in January 2017 as a nonprofit 501-C3 organization. We serve Solano and the surrounding area offering adult computer classes and digital skills instruction. Helping to ensure equal access, digital inclusion and technical skills-building means greater economic prosperity in Solano County areas. Digital citizens engage their families, stimulate their communities, and contribute to their local economy.
We provide instruction to adults of all ages - from high school students to senior citizens. Helping people to understand and use technology can change lives. This could be helping our new adults prepare for college and/or employment, helping someone build more marketable skills and get a good-paying job for the first time, or helping our senior adults access resources and stay connected to loved ones. Technology can make exciting things happen in our lives!
Belief & Philosophy
Just as one cannot read without first learning the alphabet, one also cannot function effectively in the digital age without basic computer technology and digital literacy skills. These are the ABCs of the 21st Century.
The Skills Center is committed to diversity and inclusion in our recruiting, instruction, hiring and governance practices. This commitment drives our mission to help bridge the technology gap and enhance the quality of life for adults being left behind by the digital divide. In this spirit of diversity and inclusion, we identify four core values which guide all that we do without regard to race, adult age, ethnicity, nationality, gender, religion, or any other form of social diversity. These core values are:
Our mission is to help bridge the technology gap and enhance the quality of life for adults being left behind by the digital divide. We provide basic instruction in computer technology & digital literacy, reading & financial literacy and workforce competency. Participants learn to embrace technology, pursue education and career opportunities and learn how easy, fun and beneficial it is to incorporate technology into everyday work and personal life.
Solano County is the home of thriving families, businesses and communities. The place where residents are tech savvy, self-sufficient and prosperous in their lives and careers.
