Additionally, viNGN hosted financial and digital literacy seminars for seniors and veterans, provided access to online educational resources, and the opportunity to participate in worldwide initiatives such as the Hour of Code.

viNGN thanks the public for its votes, and for the participation of thousands of U.S. Virgin Islands residents of all ages who continue to benefit from the free Cyberlearning Digital Literacy training and other services offered at the Public Computer Centers. Now that the eligibility period for the free Cyberlearning Digital Literacy program has passed, viNGN is encouraging U.S. Virgin Islanders to sign up for the free Khan Academy for academic, testing and computer training.
