The interactive course will also investigate and identify strategies and practical approaches to support digital citizenship.
The course, which is fully funded by money raised by Three Ireland employees at its Limerick-based call centre, will be delivered at Limerick Youth Service.
Liz Waters, director, VCC, said: "We believe that the use of technology and virtual learning is the best way to break down barriers and make education more accessible. We were introduced to Limerick Youth Service by our partner, Three Ireland as their mission sits very well with ours and we are delighted to now be launching this collaboration with them".
Speaking about the programme Maurice Walsh, youth work manager at Limerick Youth Service, said: "It is fitting that the course will break down barriers and make education more accessible as equality is the theme of this year’s Youth Work Ireland Week, which coincides with the information evening."
