Verizon supports remote learning in NYC

Tuesday 1 December 2020 | 15:09 CET | News
Verizon said it is supporting efforts to bridge the digital divide in the New York school district with a USD 43 million commitment to enable more pupils to learn digitally. Verizon is supporting the district's ongoing efforts to provide remote learning tools by donating 20,000 mobile hotspots to pupils who face barriers to internet and technology access in NYC Department of Education (DOE) schools. This was made possible in partnership with the Fund for Public Schools, as well as granting funding to several education non-profit organisations to enable continued STEM education.
