More about the NCTA Foundation and its partnership with Byte Back:
The NCTA Foundation is a 501(c)3 entity affiliated with NCTA – The Internet & Television Association. The Foundation has formed strategic, year-long partnerships with community-based groups serving the Washington, DC community, that are intently working to address societal needs. The objectives of this year’s Foundation partners – Byte Back, BUILD Metro DC, and A Wider Circle – intertwine with the cable industry’s approach to corporate social responsibility, with a focus on:
- forward looking development of technology and all that it makes possible for consumers,
- economic and community development especially among underserved populations, and
- the development of America’s youth.
With grant funding and other support, the NCTA Foundation acts as a catalyst for its partner organizations. It strives to help them develop new programs or expand existing ones. And it leverages resources intrinsic to our industry – such as broadband Internet access, and Internet and television content – to address societal needs.
Thanks to the NCTA Foundation, Byte Back will integrate video and virtual learning into our classes with a new in-house video studio, planned to open in summer 2017.
Special thanks to the NCTA Foundation for creating this beautiful and for their ongoing partnership, and please stay tuned as Byte Back’s video studio and virtual classroom take shape in 2017.
