Program participants that complete a pathway are eligible to receive a free computer for their home.

In a post-pandemic world, it’s important that everyone has access to the technology and skills needed to participate in the digital world.

Program Pricing

We work with partner agencies to create a customized plan to work within your desired timeline and do our best to maximize your available finances. We want to clarify that we have various subsidies we could creatively apply to reduce this cost if the program meets funder goals. We offer significant subsidies to non-profit organizations and organizations based in the City of Buffalo. As another option, we could potentially co-author a grant to offset some or many of the expenses. We encourage all interested to reach out and begin discussing what can be done to bring this program to your community in a way that greatly benefits your organization.

Why Digital Literacy?

According to the National Digital Inclusion Alliance, lack of access to digital training is a barrier to adoption which leads to opportunity gaps. A lack of digital literacy shows up disproportionately in vulnerable communities. This lack of digital literacy then compounds the existing challenges faced by vulnerable communities.

Additionally, 50% of low-income families lack sufficient devices at home to access digital learning. Mission: Ignite address this by providing refurbished devices for free as part of its programs.
