About

Go Digi aims to improve the online confidence and skills of 300 000 Australians. Become a Go Digi network partner for free and help your community get online.

This year is the National Year of Digital Inclusion, a cornerstone of the Go Digi program, which includes community pop-up festivals and conversation forums that drive awareness of the issue of digital literacy in Australia.

 

Details

Network partnership is flexible and free. It provides each organisation with a range of resources to plan market and run learning events. It’s also a great way to connect with other network partners and put learners in the centre of programs and activities in the local community.

How does it work?

Using the Go Digi platform, learners can type in their postcode to search the Go Digi network and find learning events near them.

The Go Digi Network includes all kinds of organisations across Australia like:

  • local governments
  • U3As (universities of the third age)
  • neighbourhood houses
  • libraries
  • other community focused groups

Become a network partner and help your community get online to do the things they want to do.

Have the skills but want to help?

Many people know and love someone else who needs a little help online from time to time. Sign up to become a Go Digi mentor and go through the quick and easy training.

Once finished you’ll be a whiz at helping your neighbour, workmate, friend or family member build their confidence and skills online.
