Providing Technology Access to Young People
Support from Cox bridges the digital divide for many disadvantaged young people. Cox generously provides contributions to BGCA to fund technology centers in key Cox markets. Monetary contributions to BGCA have exceeded $1.6 million, while total Movement-wide cash and in-kind internet, cable and advertising support is valued at more than $23 million. Providing low cost internet service through its Connect2Compete program, Cox and its local affiliates have established significant advances in digital literacy for many Clubs across the nation.
