Announcing the 2017 Digital Inclusion Fellowship City Hosts and Call for Fellow Applications

The Digital Inclusion Fellowship continues to expand, and applications are now open for 5 new Fellowship positions!

This will be the third cohort and the second year for the Digital Inclusion Fellowship, which is a program of NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network, in partnership with Google, Google Fiber, Values Partnerships, Capital One, PUSHTECH 2020, and FaithTech 2020.

We’re pleased to announce that several churches in Atlanta and the Bay Area, as well as nonprofit Austin Pathways in Austin, Texas, will be the 2017 City Hosts, increasing opportunities to bridge the digital divide in their communities. As the community centers for some of the most digitally excluded communities in the US, churches are uniquely positioned to provide digital literacy training and resources to their members and broader community. Fellows in the Bay Area will carry the honorific title of Jesse Jackson Digital Inclusion Fellows. 

Fellows in these organizations will have unique projects that reflect the missions, programs, and communities of each organization, but will share a common set of desired outcomes for adult digital literacy. As a network, both the City Hosts and Fellows will receive support, program guidance, training, and access to leading practitioners as they develop and implement critical programming locally.

Applications are now closed.
