Students from Northeast National University in Argentina will provide digital literacy training for participants of Ellas Hacen (They Do) and Argentina Trabaja (Argentina Works) programs to enhance technology inclusion and access to job opportunities. This initiative seeks to combine the efforts of public institutions and students under the coordination of the Argentinian Federation of Universities.

The name of the program is Rad.ar, and it is supported by the Ministry of National Modernization, and the Ministry of Sports and Education. Students that participate in the network will receive an incentive payment to keep on sharing their skills with vulnerable sectors of the population. Some of the content they are expected to teach are access to information, using internet for government services, and utilizing network communications to keep in touch with family, study or look for job opportunities.
