After School Digital Learning Center Program Grants

The After School Advantage Program, from IGT, strives to close the “Digital Divide” for disadvantaged children who get left behind because they do not have the means to access computers in today’s increasingly digital society. Its goal is to address the needs of underprivileged children ages 5 - 18 with a meaningful, yet fun, learning experience during the critical after-school hours in a safe environment. The program provides qualifying non-profit community agencies and public schools with digital learning centers. Each digital learning center is unique in its design and specific to an organization’s custom needs. The proposal submission deadline is ongoing.
