We are headquartered at New England College, in Henniker, New Hampshire.The original Digital Opportunity Consortium continues to be powered entirely by volunteers. Our aim is to close the digital divide at home for the nation's low-income schoolchildren and their families. We also help educators and those who prepare future educators and school leaders to learn about essential technology resources, how to use them in teaching and learning, and how to ensure all students enjoy full access to them.
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.
