Access to technology at home is critical to a student’s education & future

    • 80% of jobs are now listed online instead of in newspapers
    • 50% of today’s jobs require technology skills, and this percentage is expected to grow to 77% in the next decade
    • Students with a PC and Internet access at home have graduation rates that are 6-8% higher than similar students who don’t have access.
    • Less than half of low-income K-12 students have Internet access at home compared to more than 90 percent of higher-income families

    Connect2Compete (C2C) is a national nonprofit initiative aimed at narrowing the digital divide by providing low-cost Internet service, computer, training and content solutions for disadvantaged communities.  In San Diego, Cox Communications partners with C2C and Computers 2 SD Kids to bring these tools to students and their families to help them succeed.
