#MyBrothersKeeper Program & Sprint Will Give Free Internet Access to 1M Students
On Tuesday, The White House announced a new pledge with Sprint to give 1 million high school students without home internet, new digital devices and four years of mobile broadband service.
The move is part of the Obama administration’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, a public-private partnership designed to help solve the “persistent opportunity gaps facing boys and young men of color.”
As a part of the program between Sprint and the White House, schools in lower-income communities will be able to choose tablets, smartphones, mobile broadband-enabled laptops, or Wi-Fi hotspots.
Other tech companies such as Apple, Verizon and Adobe have donated software and devices to the ConnectED initiative in the past.
