The youth development organization 4-H taps teenagers who love video games and computer programming for its 4-H Tech Changemakers program, which provides young people with the education and tools needed to teach digital skills to adults in their communities.

The program reached 37,000 adults through 325 teen coaches during the past school year, and more digital skills sessions are planned for the coming school year.

National 4-H Council's Jennifer Sirangelo said overcoming the digital divide "is something that Americans are united on. Young people are part of the solution."
