Building Better Communities
Providing Tools and Opportunities to Youth of Today for Their Careers Tomorrow
UScellular is focused on addressing gaps in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. We are connecting tomorrow’s innovators with the resources they need today to help shape their future opportunities. Through partnerships with nonprofit organizations, original research, and associate volunteerism, we’re addressing the digital divide and providing critical resources in local communities.

We are building better communities in three ways
K-12 STEM Education
We know that STEM education and technology go hand-in-hand. That’s why we invest our time, talent, and resources in helping ensure K-12 youth have equitable opportunities to pursue successful careers in STEM. For more than a decade, partnerships with organizations like Boys & Girls Club of America have provided students with resources, access, mentorship, and hands-on STEM education to ensure they have the important tools to reach their full potential.

Our associates love to give back. It is part of who we are and how we are Building Better Communities. We recognize their commitment and the impact they are making, which is why we offer a variety of programs like personal donation matching, Cause Cards rewards and Dollars For Doers to support the causes they care passionately about in local communities.
After School Access Project
After School Access Project is a program that provides mobile hotspots and service to nonprofits that support youth after the school day has ended and provides safe internet access for homework and education. Our goal is to close the connectivity gap for youth living within our markets, so homework can truly be done at home. To bridge the digital divide in 2022, we’re pledging up to $13 million in hotspots and service to help up to 50,000 youth connect to reliable internet in our markets.
