“We are proud to partner with the New York State Office for New Americans to provide computer education and training to immigrants across the state,” said CanCode Communities Founder and CEO Annmarie Lanesey. “Digital literacy is essential for building a career in today’s information economy, and by equipping more New Yorkers with those critical skills, we are enhancing the tech talent pipeline to support the needs of employers.” 

As part of NewAmericans CanCode, students learn Microsoft Office, how to manage calendars and email, basic internet safety skills, and basic computer usage. The course is available to any immigrant living in New York regardless of status, who meets eligibility requirements.
