	Dear Digital Divide Educators,
	
	We are partnering with a company that delivers broadband high speed
	Internet
	access in the USA via satellite. This company is willing to donate this
	service to a number of schools and community center youth education
	programs in the USA -- specifically, those who have the greatest need.
	
	Therefore, we are seeking to identify schools or community center youth
	programs that meet the following THREE criteria:
	
	1) they do NOT currently have broadband access to the Internet
	   AND
	2) they are located in a REMOTE area -- WITHOUT cable modem or DSL Internet
	access options
	   AND
	3) they are willing to engage youth in an online collaborative learning
	project in which students create web projects that showcase their local
	community
	
	If you are an educator at a school or community center youth program in the
	USA who meets the above THREE criteria -- and you are interested in this
	opportunity -- please send me an email telling me about your circumstances.
	
	Sincerely,
	Yvonne
