Together with T-Mobile’s Project 10M, Big Brothers Big Sisters is helping to close the digital divide for youth. Now, youth in our Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) program who would traditionally qualify for Project 10M can receive eligibility verification from BBBS to complete their enrollment for a free T-Mobile Hot Spot Device.
Helping ensure internet access is not a barrier to a child’s education
T-Mobile launched Project 10Million as our 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 100MB of internet per year for 5 years.
It's enough data for any one of the following:
- 140 hours Streaming school videos
- 320 hours Of online virtual learning
- 5,000 hours Of internet research
- 200 hours Of online college test prep
Sign up is easy!
It’s easy! Eligible BBBS Youth (in grade 12 or younger) will be provided a qualification letter from BBBS to allow their parent to enroll them in this free program. Parents must complete the final submission to T-Mobile for the device. There is NO CHARGE to the family. There is NO OBLIGATION from the family when they receive the device. If you have questions, please contact your Match Support Specialist.
For parents, the registration process is simple:
Upload an image of your child’s NSLP letter with approval (from BBBS)
