Frontier Local Schools Internet Connectivity ProgramProject led by Building Bridges to Careers
About the project.
This Cause Connector project supports internet connections for students at Frontier Local Schools in Washington County.
When students are able to successfully connect to the internet, they are able to participate in Frontier Local Schools’ Building Bridges to Careers programs. These programs support students’ career development by providing job shadowing, internship, and mentoring opportunities.
Funds raised through this Cause Connector project will provide 10 hotspots that students may check out from their schools. The hotspots will provide internet access to students in their own homes. This will enhance student access to education, as well as access to virtual programs through Building Bridges to Careers.
FAO staff comments.
Many students in Appalachian Ohio face barriers to connectivity and internet access. For students from Frontier Local Schools, this lack of internet prevents many from accessing the support and programming of Building Bridges to Careers (BB2C), which provides virtual career training. Funding would allow students to check out hotspots from the school, providing them with access to basic education and career training from BB2C, paving the way for success after graduation.
