A South Carolina congressman and a Federal Communications Commissioner are showcasing a South Carolina program that helps young people learn about digital technology.
U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn and his daughter, FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn, join officials in North Charleston on Friday to show off a program known as the Charleston Digital Connectors Program.
The Comcast program trains young people in skills such as networking computer labs, connecting wireless access points and creating video documentaries.
The students then volunteer their time at community organizations to teach others what they have learned. There are similar programs at more than 50 sites nationwide.
