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.
