Get Connected with Help from EveryoneOn.org
Whether it's finding a job or learning new skills, you should benefit from Internet connectivity.
The ProblemTechnology has transformed the way we do business, receive healthcare, and communicate with our loved ones, yet close to 1 in 5 Americans do not use the Internet. Disproportionately from low-income and minority communities, these populations remain isolated from our digital society.
Who We Are
EveryoneOn is a national nonprofit working to eliminate the digital divide by making high-speed, low-cost Internet service and computers, and free digital literacy courses accessible to all unconnected Americans. We aim to leverage the democratizing power of the Internet to provide opportunity to all Americans – regardless of age, race, geography, income, or education level.
Bringing Affordable Internet & Devices Into the Home
Through partnerships with local Internet service providers, EveryoneOn is able to offer free or $9.95 home Internet service in 48 states and the District of Columbia. We work with device refurbishers, so individuals and their families can purchase discounted devices, including $150 tablets and $199 laptops.
Free Basic Digital Literacy Training
We collaborate with libraries and nonprofits to advertise free computer & Internet courses at over 8,000 training sites across the country. By calling 1-855-EVRY1ON or visiting everyoneon.org, users can discover the closest class in their communities.

Hobe Sound Elementary School Earns Second Place!
In an effort to promote the literacy and the life-long love of reading, the Education Foundation of Martin County challenged all upper level Martin County elementary students to read all 15 titles listed on the annually selected Sunshine State Reader book list.
Teams of students in grades 3 through 5 from all elementary schools then prepared to compete in the annual Education Foundation of Martin County Elementary Book Bowl on March 22, 2016 at the Performing Arts Center of Jensen Beach High School.
The Book Bowl competition is based upon the 15 books selected by the Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program, a statewide reading motivation program. Questions will be posed, with each team having 45 seconds to decide on an answer, write it down, and submit it to the judges...game-show style.
