Building 
a better future

#weneedmore kids to see the world of possibilities waiting for them

Millions of kids from underserved communities, who want a better future for themselves, lack access to technology and educational resources in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to compete for the jobs of tomorrow.

With about 9 million available STEM jobs – and over 4 million available jobs in science and technology alone – our youth need access to education and resources that will prepare them for success in tomorrow’s high-tech world.

Verizon is addressing this issue through an initiative called Verizon Innovative Learning that provides free technology, free access and immersive, hands-on learning to students and teachers in underserved communities across America.

Verizon Innovative Learning develops STEM education programs from the ground up. We not only fund these programs, but we also create and administer them in partnership with leading nonprofits. We diligently measure the impact of our efforts in this area and refine our programs to ensure we’re making a difference. At Verizon Innovative Learning schools, we not only provide technology and access, but we also give the students a unique, exciting, immersive curriculum that engages them and opens their eyes to new possibilities.

We need more kids to see the world of possibilities waiting for them.
