Comcast Sponsors Read, Think Share Program

We are delighted to announce that Comcast is now a sponsor for our online literacy intervention program!

Read, Think, Share is a classroom-based program coupled with online mentoring which serves struggling readers and designed to foster a love of reading, improve literacy skills, reduce behavior problems, and reduce drop-out rates. In 2013, we served nearly 1,000 students grades 5-12 in western Massachusetts
Comcast joins an illustrious list of our sponsors including the Amelia Peabody Foundation, the Hiatt Family Foundation, the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, the Fordham Street Foundation, the Beveridge Family Foundation, and many individual contributors.

Comcast is a strong supporter of access to technology and online learning for low-income students. Recently, Comcast announced that they have made their Internet Essentials program a permanent opportunity for low-income families. In its first two and a half years, Internet Essentials has connected more than 1.2 million low-income Americans (that’s 300,000 families!) to the power of the Internet at home.
Thanks to Comcast, eligible low-income students and their families in Comcast service areas (Massachusetts) will continue to be able to benefit from America's largest broadband adoption program providing affordable Internet service, discounted computers, and free digital literacy training.
