Together with T-Mobile’s Project 10Million, Big Brothers Big Sisters is helping to eliminate the Digital Divide for good by providing access to internet connectivity to every student in the U.S. Now, youth in our Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) program who would traditionally qualify for Project 10Million will receive a verification form from BBBS to easily complete their enrollment for a free T-Mobile Hot Spot Device and 5 years of service.
Helping ensure internet access is not a barrier to a child’s education
In 2020, T-Mobile launched Project 10Million as their 5 year commitment to close the homework gap. As they continue their effort to close the digital divide, they have partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters to provide eligible students (up to grade 12) with free internet through free mobile hotspots with 100GB of internet per year for 5 years.
