About EveryoneOn

EveryoneOn envisions a more just and prosperous future for all by ensuring every person can harness the transformative power of the internet. No longer a luxury, the internet is the fundamental building block of our digital economy; and yet over 18M households, disproportionately from low-income communities of color, have been priced out and cut off from the most important communications platform and economic engine of our time. EveryoneOn is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to fostering social & economic opportunity by connecting people to affordable internet service and computers and providing digital skills training.

EveryoneOn works primarily in under-resourced communities of color, particularly Black/African-American, Tribal, and Latino/x communities. We are seeking candidates with lived experience, and those who are culturally competent with the communities we serve.

Since 2012, EveryoneOn has connected more than one million students, adults, seniors, and veterans from across 48 states and provided them with improved access to best-in-class educational and digital literacy resources, job readiness training, and critical financial and governmental services.
