Verizon Innovative Learning

a better future

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

In order to compete for the jobs of the future, it's essential for every kid to have access to technology and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education.

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.

There are over 4 million available jobs in science and technology. However, millions of kids can’t compete for them because they lack access to technology and tech education—leaving too many kids behind. We need more kids to see the world of possibilities waiting for them. That’s why Verizon is giving free technology, free access, and immersive, hands-on learning to kids in need.
