August 23, 2018 | 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM EDT



This webinar series serves as guidance to help ConnectHome participating communities achieve their goals in connecting households to broadband and assisting communities in their digital literacy efforts. Presenters discuss topics in the ConnectHome Playbook and best practice examples from participating communities.

Partnerships between philanthropy, government, and nonprofits provide the capacity to achieve far greater outcomes together than organizations can achieve on their own. In many instances, solutions for problems are rarely under the singular control of one sector and require joint efforts to address. This webinar provides an overview of public-philanthropic partnerships and information on how to harness this innovative way of working to support the work of ConnectHome.

Training Objectives

  • Understand ConnectHome Playbook chapter topics and application
  • Understand concepts to help meet ConnectHome program goals
