We partner with communities, states, professional associations, companies, schools and preparation programs to provide digital access at home at the lowest possible cost to the most essential learning technology resources including broadband, computing devices, educational content across the PreK-12 curriculum, ongoing tech support, and low-interest financing even for families with poor or no credit.
