BRIDGING THE DIGITAL DIVIDE

WORKING TOWARDS DIGITAL EQUITY IN ALLEGHENY COUNTY

Digital equity is a condition in which all individuals and communities have the technology and resources necessary for full participation in our society, democracy, and economy.

Beyond the Laptops is an initiative by Neighborhood Allies, in partnership with nonprofits, universities, government entities, foundations, and companies across the city of Pittsburgh, that connects residents with 3 pillars of digital equity:

        • Access to affordable, high-speed internet
        • Access to hardware and technology
        • Access to digital literacy education and empowerment

The Beyond the Laptops program is an essential resource for youth and families. Through this initiative, we have connected 30 youth and adults to laptop computers, affordable WIFI options and free technology help services. This program has created an equitable pathway for neighbors to access digital academic tools, employment responsibilities/opportunities and vital social service resources.
