70% of America’s school teachers assign homework to be completed online. Yet five million US families with school-age kids do not have Internet connectivity at home.
This disconnect leads to dramatic impacts on kids’ daily lives, including the inability to complete homework in safe, predictable and productive environments. Unfortunately, this challenge can have lifelong impacts on students’’ ability to achieve their full potential.
The 1Million Project Foundation’s mission is to help 1 million high school students who do not have reliable Internet access at home reach their full potential by giving them mobile devices and free high-speed Internet access.
The 1Million Project Foundation will help level the playing field so that disadvantaged high school students will have access to the technology they need to succeed in school, participate in the digital world and ultimately reach their full potential.
