The Angeleno Connectivity Trust provides free internet service to students in Los Angeles who are struggling to stay connected online to classes and essential support services.

The Mayor’s Fund in coordination with T-Mobile through its Project 10Million, and several community-based organizations, joined forces to create the Angeleno Connectivity Trust: an extraordinary initiative aimed at providing 100 GB per year of free Internet access for up to 18,000 students for the next five years. This program is focused on students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, young people with disabilities, at-risk youth, and those who may have dropped out of school or cannot attend due to a lack of technological resources.
