1,000

We have opened more than 1,000 Lift Zones nationwide to provide student and families with access to free, high-capacity WiFi.

13,000

1,000s

We are empowering thousands of Digital Navigators to help get even more people connected to the Internet across the country.

We know that having access to the Internet along with the tools and information necessary to navigate the digital world are critical to closing the opportunity gap. But, the unfortunate reality is that not everyone has the resources and skills they need. For more than a decade, we have used our platforms and reach to help bridge the digital divide by connecting more people to the Internet and getting devices into the hands of people who need them. We also work with our network of partners to help address barriers to adoption that go beyond affordability, including a lack of awareness that low-income broadband programs exist and a lack of digital skills. By working together to expand broadband adoption, we can help close the homework gap, advance economic mobility, and achieve digital equity.

Team UP

Team UP is our national employee volunteer program, offering Comcast teams across the country opportunities to give back to their local communities 365-days a year.

We know that equitable access to skills and development opportunities is essential to building and supporting the future workforce, yet it remains a barrier to millions. From creating equitable pathways to technology roles, to supporting young journalists, to opening doors for new voices and stories to be shared, we can help foster the next generation of innovators, creators, and storytellers.

Too often, business leaders and young innovators don’t have the funding or resources to bring their ideas to life and excel in a digital world. By equipping entrepreneurs and small business owners with the skills, digital resources, and opportunities they need to thrive, we can empower them create their own success and achieve long-term growth. Together with partners like the Echoing Green, Native Women Lead, Prospera, StartOut, Ureeka, and Walker’s Legacy, we’re also committed to making sure the next generation has an entrepreneurial mindset and the tools they need to bring their ideas to life.
