ACC Fellowship Experience
The American Connection Corps is an initiative within Lead for America. Fellows across the country are creating a national impact in broadband development and access by addressing the local connectivity needs in their communities.
The knowledge fuels this initiative that access to the internet is no longer a luxury; it is a utility needed to access citizen resources, education, healthcare, and jobs. Everyone in this country deserves to have access. Our Fellows are doing amazing things to see this realized, from helping get the groundwork for their county or town to get fiber internet, to helping tackle digital skills training, to helping address affordability. They’re creating opportunities for people to return home with access to resources they’d be able to get in larger cities and places that aren’t home.
This initiative is possible because of the support of over 180 businesses and organizations who make up the American Connection Project, a group designed to see the entire country have internet access, particularly in rural America and underserved communities.
This is a one-year AmeriCorps Service term (what is AmeriCorps?). Through the ACC Fellowship, candidates apply to pre-existing Fellowships – listed above- in which a host organization, location, and project scope are already determined.
