The One to One education initiative is a partnership between Philly Connects and College Together . In this current COVID-19 climate, we aim to provide disadvantaged students in Philadelphia with the digital tools they need to continue learning and achieve their goals. We accept donated laptops and monetary donations for new laptops (at ~$250/laptop, tax-free). We also engage in advocacy to increase student access to a reliable internet connection.
Your donations will enable us to bridge the achievement gaps at all education levels caused by economic and racial disparities--a gap fueled by the digital divide. Laptops specifically go to:
(1) schoolchildren in predominantly Black public and charter schools and
(2) low-income, underrepresented minority, 1st-generation college students,
at a ratio of 1:1.
Thank you for helping us combat the digital divide, by empowering young generations of Philadelphia students to fulfill their educational goals remotely during these difficult times.
If you are navigating here as part of your Penn HealthX registration, welcome! While the minumum donation is $10, we welcome any amount of donations via this charity GoFundMe. We value and appreciate your committment to education.
