How can we ensure that students in low-income communities have access to current technology? Since 2002, Per Scholas—a nonprofit social venture in New York City—has been instrumental in helping children and families bridge the digital divide.

The result: Students are not only empowered to achieve in school, but also gain computer skills that will help them for the rest of their lives.
