NTEN Annouces 22 City Hosts for Digital inclusion Fellowship Program

April 27th, 2016

Last week, the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) announced the City Hosts for the second cohort of its Digital Inclusion Fellowship Program and ULC is proud to announce that ULC member libraries have been selected as Hosts in seven out of the eleven cities in the initiative. The cohort consists of 22 host organizations (two in each city) that are now accepting applications for Fellows to help build localized digital literacy and broadband adoption initiatives. ULC members selected as City Hosts include Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, Kansas City Public Library, Nashville Public Library, Multnomah County Library, Salt Lake City Public Library, San Antonio Public Library and San Francisco Public Library.

In partnership with Google Fiber and Capital One, NTEN will provide City Hosts and Fellows with "support, program guidance, training, and access to leading practitioners as they develop and implement critical programming locally." Programs will focus on four core mission areas: adult literacy, digital inclusion, libraries and public or affordable housing. The deadline for fellows to apply for positions in host organizations is May 13.
