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. Our model drives meaningful broadband adoption and digital readiness among unconnected populations with unprecedented scale by leveraging cross-sector partnerships with the nation’s internet service providers (ISPs), community-based nonprofits, and public-sector agencies, including the Department of Housing and Urban Affairs (HUD), and the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). Currently, EveryoneOn serves the majority of our income-insecure beneficiaries through key program verticals: our best-in-class broadband adoption platform, our digital literacy trainings, and capacity building trainings for diverse organizations.

About the Role 

EveryoneOn is conducting an ongoing national search for Digital Skills Instructors to deliver our digital skills programming. Instructors will teach income-insecure adults (ages 18-65), with limited to no prior computer training, to effectively use a computer and complete basic digital tasks. Instruction may be delivered virtually or in-person. Instructional topics are novice to introductory level and will center around applied digital literacy and skills (i.e. document creation, digital communication, platform use), maintaining online privacy and safety, and will introduce participants to various digital resources. Our programs require multiple instructors and we anticipate a high volume of work with EveryoneOn and other partners across the country for the foreseeable future. Classes will be held in person at a site in select cities in California, Texas, and Wisconsin
