1Million Project

The Sprint Foundation has committed to help close the Homework Gap by providing 1 million free devices and wireless service to low-income high school students who do not have internet access at home.

Potential is everywhere. Opportunity is not.

All students are curious, want a brighter future, and are willing to work hard. But they need tools to translate their efforts into meaningful outcomes. This holds true regardless of family incomes, the color of students’ skin or their gender. All kids have potential.

Standing in their way, however, is a very real challenge. 70% of America’s high school teachers assign homework to be completed online, but more than 5 million families with school-age kids do not have internet connectivity at home. Without the home internet connectivity, success will be difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. For high school students, home internet connectivity is a must-have, not a want-to-have.

In response, the Sprint Foundation has launched the 1Million Project. Designed to help close America’s homework gap, 1MP will provide 1 million free devices and wireless service to high schools/districts for their low-income high school students who do not have home internet access.

Here at the Sprint Foundation, we believe in hard work. We believe in solutions. And we believe in the potential of students.

Potential is everywhere. Join our solution.
