We provide various resources, learning sites, and connections to low-cost Internet Services.
Equity is important to us. Digital Inclusion is partially funded by the City of San Jose and overseen by the California Emerging Technology Fund. Cell phones are LifeLine phones and are provided by Gates Consulting Group (and a lot of other terrific people).
Everyone can participate, but certain offers are provided based on income and residence location.
We teach people how to use devices to connect to the Internet and how to protect their identity, find resources, learn, set up emails, get help, and be helpful.
Connect people to affordable and low-cost devices:
We connect people to NEW free Smartphones (always available) that include access to the Internet, and free to low-cost (refurbished and new) tablets, laptops, and desktop computers (based on income and availability). Everyone can participate, but certain offers are provided based on income and residence location.
Connect people to affordable and low-cost Internet Services
We connect people to very low-cost Internet services, but we first teach them how to become smart consumers. San Joseans who complete the Digital Literacy Project, acquire a device, and signup for Affordable Internet. Some will get free Affordable Internet, $30 off of their market-rate internet bill, or $30 off of their cell-phone data bill.

Surveys – Community Advocacy
We conduct surveys to learn from (and inform) the community and then share what we learn with decision-makers. It’s all about creating and protecting what the community wants and needs.
We are working on compiling community resources specific to San Jose. Under Construction.
