The use of technology to access educational content is necessary to ensure future generations can compete in the global economy and to prepare them for the 21st century workforce.

Connect2Compete will help Americans access technology through three exciting offers: free digital literacy training, discounted high-speed Internet, and low-cost computers. To promote the work, Connect2Compete will create a national outreach campaign focused on the importance of technology to develop digital skills and find new opportunities.

During the spring of 2012, Connect2Compete launched a pilot of this program in San Diego, California. Connect2Compete plans to expand its program to all 50 states in the coming months. To date, Connect2Compete has received billions of dollars in donated and in-kind commitments.
