Mankato Youth Place will receive a $15,000 AT&T contribution to support its work to help local youth affected by the digital divide during a presentation on Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 11:00 a.m.
The AT&T contribution will support the Mankato Youth Place’s afterschool programs that focus on addressing the digital divide, including the Academic Hour program. Over the past year, youth everywhere have been directly affected by the digital divide and the homework gap due to the pandemic. Youth served by MY Place are no exception. Many youth do not have reliable internet or a computer at home to complete their homework.
