Net Literacy is grateful for Lilly Endowment’s continuing support of our student empowered programs. This summer, funding will be used to support two initiatives. First, we will repurpose more than 1,000 to 1,500 computers that will be donated to the Indiana State Library, schools, families of students on free lunch programs without a computer at home, and other nonprofits so that they can build or expand computer labs. During the past three years, we have donated to libraries in rural Indiana that didn’t have computers to build computer labs and the student board decided that should be our highest priority for the computers.
Working together with the Indiana Department of Education, we have identified high priority Internet safety topics and will be creating videos that use “straight talk” to discuss tough issues that teens face online. These videos will be posted on the Safe Connects and Net Reputation websites.
