The Future Starts Here Program will provide stable internet access and quality digital literacy and fundamental classes that will assist individuals in Union County to improve their basic technological skills and enhance their employment opportunities.

Class times are Mondays, 10 am to 4 pm; Thursdays, 10 am to 4:30 pm; and Saturdays, 10 am to 1 pm with more classes to be added.
