We are helping to address the digital divide with boots on the ground in heartland communities. The American Connection Corps will empower a new generation of leaders to help bring connectivity to their hometowns, addressing a critical need and retaining young talent.
Our American Connection Corps fellows’ are working in cities and rural towns across Arkansas, Illinois, Ohio and Tennessee, 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.
