The CARDBoard Project focuses on bridging the digital divide through the ‘three legs of the stool’ – access, affordability and training – to make a more connected community through outreach to areas that have unreliable access to the internet and need support to access critical services.
Why We Serve
Digital inclusion and literacy supports the path to self sufficiency. Digital connection is required for employment and career progression as well as access to other social services.
