Over one-third of students in Oakland Unified didn’t have internet at home before the pandemic, according to EdSource. With distance learning beginning this fall, underserved students will fall behind without Internet connectivity to learn and do homework!
If you have benefited from having a computer and Internet at home growing up, please consider helping underserved students participate in distance learning during this pandemic.
Here are local San Francisco Bay Area initiatives bridging the digital gap for under-served students, and how you can help:
Donate $300 to provide a low-income student a computer, Internet & support with Oakland Tech Exchange. Get your employer to double your contribution to Tech for All — the program runs under Oakland Public Education Fund, a non-profit 501(c)(3). #TECHFORALL #OAKLANDUNDIVIDED
Donate $500 to provide a low-income student a computer, Internet & support with StreetCode Live in east Palo Alto. Get your employer to double your contribution to StreetCode Academy, a non-profit 501(c)(3). #STREETCODELIVE
Tell us about a great program connecting donors with students who need the resources.
