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.
