Sounds like a great idea to me. If you're interested in looking into
this in more detail you could have a chat to Kylie Willison who has
been running FOSS-based introductory computer courses as part of Teen
Challenge Murray Bridge. She would probably have good insight into
what would need to be done, and she's also heavily involved with
ComputerBank which would be another party that might be interested in
participating since they also do training. See:
