By 2020, 77 percent of US jobs will require technology skills. Yet today, millions of American students lack the access to technology and the skills they need to succeed in the digital world.
Verizon has been working to help solve this problem holistically through Verizon Innovative Learning, a transformative program that provides free technology, free internet access, and immersive, hands-on learning experiences to help give under-resourced students the education they deserve. Powered by a next-gen, technology-infused curriculum that fundamentally changes the way teachers teach and students learn, Verizon Innovative Learning is giving kids the ability to do more in this world.
Verizon is also empowering viewers/listeners to help support schools through a mission to raise two million voices for education equality. For every voice raised, Verizon will donate a dollar (up to $2 million total) in tech education resources and tools to schools in need.
