Upgrade your computer skills! With computers we can communicate, search for jobs, play games, work and connect with local, provincial and federal governments.
Anyone is welcome to come and visit Bang the Drum to surf the internet for FREE. You can get involved with Bang the Drum as a student, a volunteer, or on a drop-in basis to use the internet.
If you want to become a student, you are able to take advantage of as many lessons as you need–a group of dedicated volunteers will tutor each lesson and will be happy to assist you as best as they can. Class size is 4 students or less, often one-on-one help is available. Lesson times are flexible and can be custom arranged between the tutor and the group of students. Don’t hesitate, this is a great opportunity! Classes can usually be arranged in your first language.
The internet is one form of long-distance communication. Long before the internet, the telephone or even the telegraph, drums were one of the first forms of long-distance communication in various regions around the world. We named this program Bang the Drum to celebrate the diversity and means of communications over the ages.
