Corporate Responsibility Report

A better future 
for everyone

We believe that our technology has the power to help people lead better lives, solve problems in new ways and create lasting value both for Verizon and for society. And when we use our resources to make the world a better place, we also create growth opportunities for Verizon. We call this virtuous cycle of value-creation shared success.

Our progress

Verizon is working to create a better future for all. We are providing free technology, free internet access and an immersive, hands-on learning curriculum to underserved students across the United States, delivering innovative Internet of Things solutions that address global and local challenges, and supporting nonprofits and communities through employee volunteerism.

Connecting underserved youth to the skills of tomorrow

Girls with VR

Jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are growing at nearly twice the rate of those in other fields, yet far too many young people in underserved communities lack adequate access to technology and STEM education to take full advantage of these opportunities. Verizon is addressing this issue through an initiative called Verizon Innovative Learning, a program that provides free technology, free internet access and immersive, hands-on learning to students and teachers, particularly in underserved communities across America.
