National Digital Equity Center logo

The National Digital Equity Center, a 501c3 non-profit, is a nationally recognized organization with a mission to close the digital divide across the United States. The National Digital Equity Center has been, and will continue to be, a thought leader on digital equity and digital inclusion.

We are proponents of Digital Equity, a condition in which all individuals and communities have the information technology capacity needed for full participation in our society, democracy and economy.  Digital equity is necessary for civic and cultural participation, employment, lifelong learning, and access to essential services.

The National Digital Equity Center advocates for Digital Inclusion which includes Affordable Broadband, Affordable Equipment, Digital Literacy, and Public Computer Access. The National Digital Equity Center is focused on creating digitally literate citizens in the United States and providing communities with the expertise to mobilize broadband technologies through digital inclusion and literacy efforts.

The National Digital Equity Center provides Digital Literacy classes that provide opportunities for professional growth, personal enrichment, the development of computer skills, and preparation for professional careers in a supportive environment. Customized training and consulting solutions are offered to businesses and industries, as well as community residents. Online classes are held in a live interactive form using a videoconference platform; in-person classes are at community locations in collaboration with partner organizations.  We provide all instruction in a small group interactive learning setting, whether it is online or in-person.

Additionally, the National Digital Equity Center works with communities to develop Digital Equity and Digital Inclusion Plans; Affordable Equipment Programs; and local Affordable Broadband Benefit subsidies.

The National Digital Equity Center is proud to provide communities across the United States with the expertise needed to mobilize broadband technologies through digital inclusion, literacy efforts, education, resource planning, funding research, infrastructure leveraging and stakeholder engagement.
