Intel Online Learning Initiative: Creating Connections
Welcome to the Creating Connections application!
As part of a purposeful opportunity made possible by Intel Corporation ®, CDW, and LEGO Foundation, First Book is soliciting proposals for personal computer (PC) and STEAM resource distributions that will ultimately connect more than 10,000 kids in need with their human right to education during the COVID-19 pandemic. The closure of schools during this time exacerbates an existing crisis in education for children in poverty, millions of whom do not have access to computers or internet to enable virtual learning. These children are isolated without educational support and are falling even further behind.
First Book, Intel, CDW and LEGO Foundation recognize that districts are struggling to support remote learning now and will need to support students overcoming the impact of COVID-19 and summer learning loss in the next school year. Through this initiative, these partners have joined forces, combining unique assets and capabilities, to provide a holistic learning solution to support your efforts.
First Book believes that education is the way out of poverty for children in need. We aim to provide all children equal access to quality education by making books and other resources available to classrooms and programs serving children in need, from birth to age 18.
Thank you for your interest in this initiative. We look forward to receiving your proposal!
