Great news! Skillpoint has been selected for the second year as a City Host for The Nonprofit Technology Network’s (NTEN) Digital Inclusion Fellowship.

Last year, NTEN announced its first ever Digital Inclusion Fellowship (DIF), in partnership with Google Fiber. In an effort to increase digital literacy and broadband adoption in digitally divided communities, NTEN placed 16 Fellows in locally-based organizations in eight cities across the country. This year we’re one of the now 11 cities to host a Fellow.

“NTEN’s Digital Inclusion Fellowship is a wonderful opportunity for our organization, and our local community as a whole,” said Amanda Longtain, Skillpoint’s Director of Programs. “We’re committed to helping improve adult digital literacy across Austin, and can’t wait to work with our fellow to grow our Empower program and help more families forge a path to self-sufficiency and success.”

“At NTEN, we see the impact that having a digitally engaged community can have on social impact work and want to be sure that every nonprofit and community based organization understands how to be part of the digital world and bring their communities along with them,” said Amy Sample Ward, CEO of NTEN.

The news gets better: you can apply today to be Skillpoint’s Fellow! Applications are now open and interviews will be scheduled on a rolling basis during the application period. Fellow selection may happen before the applications close date, which is May 13th, so we encourage you to apply today!

You can learn more about the Digital Inclusion Fellowship, the available Fellow positions, and how to apply in the Community Call on April 28.
