Meet Our Fellows

Heartland Forward’s American Connection Corps fellows making a difference

Our American Connection Corps fellows are working in cities and rural towns across the heartland with organizations spearheading digital equity in their local communities. We are helping them launch digital literacy and affordability initiatives that the fellows will design to reach key groups, from senior residents to elementary school teachers, with the skills and devices they need to thrive in the digital age.
