The grant that funds Digital Bridges will soon end and the center downtown will close later this month.
Since 2010, Digital Bridges has provided resources for Milledgeville/Baldwin County citizens to increase digital literacy and promote innovative uses of technology.
“We’ve held tech training courses, hosted educational classes, provided online resume workshops, a lot of different things to help bridge the digital divide in our community,” said Director Tommy Cook. “The goal set in front of us four years ago was to make the project self-sustainable. We weren’t able to completely achieve that, so now we have to reimagine the project.”
Several groups are working to continue the goals of the project and are looking for help from the local community.
“We hope to be able to keep the spirit alive with community support and volunteers,” said Cook. “Digital Bridges is taking a new form that will really make it community owned and operated.”
