Get online in Eastern Kentucky

Tap into free services to help you get the most out of an internet connection

An internet connection opens the door to online education and jobs — and a better quality of life for those who have them. But without training in digital skills, you can’t use the internet to its full potential. The SOAR Office of Digital Equity fills this gap. It’s funded by the National Digital Inclusion Alliance and offers free digital skills training for residents of Eastern Kentucky.
