“Before I took the DEVA training, I had no idea about Slack, Zoom, Google Docs, or LinkedIn Learning. I didn’t know you could share a Google Doc with someone and both work on it at the same time. I also didn’t know how to find things online. And because of this training, I have a job as a communications coordinator.”
