Once underserved communities have accessible, affordable broadband Internet, it is crucial to integrate it into their lives to the extent they are comfortable.
Integration means fully realizing the many benefits that the Internet offers in their daily lives to accomplish tasks more thoroughly and efficiently.
Whether due to a lack of affordable options, functional knowledge, accessible training, or fear of exploitation, many Latinxs and others in underserved communities fail to integrate technology and telecommunications resources into their daily lives. To facilitate this crucial integration, ALLvanza promotes directly, through programs, and indirectly, through our advocacy, education and training that enable underserved communities to embrace online resources and take full advantage of the many benefits offered from Internet use.
To take direct action to empower underserved communities, ALLvanza hosts technology information sessions at local schools, speaks at industry events and conferences, and works with congressional leaders to help them understand the important role that education and training plays in integrating broadband into our stakeholders’ daily lives. Another key concept relating to education and training is to ensure that the information is conveyed in the language of preference of the audience. ALLvanza works to ensure that our stakeholders receive the education and training needed, in the language of their preference, to feel comfortable fully integrating the Internet and associated technology into their everyday lives to be able to take full advantage of the many benefits they offer.
