Verizon Innovative Learning
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.
We provide free tech, free access and hands on learning.
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.
Making a real difference takes more than just technology. Through our partnership with Digital Promise, Verizon equips every child and teacher at select middle schools across America with a tablet and two-year data plan.
How do you get kids to see possibilities they never dreamed of? By marrying technology, role models and hands-on learning in an immersive tech program, through partnerships with leading nonprofits and universities.
What’s more hands-on than working in teams to develop apps that solve society’s problems? The App Challenge—a Verizon Innovative Learning program—helps middle and high school students create mobile apps that meet a need in their communities or schools.
