With My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, Company Commits 500 Mobile
Hotspots with Service at Landmark Boys and Men of Color Career Summit in
the Bay Area

OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sprint today will announce a donation of approximately $1 million in
devices and service to help further the educational and employment
opportunities for 500 City of Oakland, CA young adults as part of the
Sprint for ConnectED program, and partnership with My Brother’s Keeper
Alliance (MBKA) — a national nonprofit organization dedicated to
improving life outcomes for boys and men of color.

Executives from Sprint and MBKA will make the commitment to provide 500
4G LTE mobile hotspot devices each with four years of service to the
City of Oakland at the “Invest in Youth: Pathways to Success Boys and
Men of Color (BMoC) Career Summit.”

This donation will provide much-needed connectivity to support the
learning and career advancement for area youth through the Oakland
Promise program, which aims for every child in Oakland to graduate from
high school with the expectations, resources, and skills to complete
college and be successful in the career of his or her choice.

“In this increasingly digital world, at Sprint we believe that
connectivity can play a critical role in transforming young people’s
lives to achieve higher levels of education and better job
opportunities,” said Suehyun Johan Chung, Sprint’s Northern California
president. “We’re honored to be part of this tremendous summit and help
500 Bay Area young adults to complete their online homework to get
better grades, apply for jobs or school opportunities that are only
available online, and have access to the same online resources as their
connected counterparts.”

Sprint employees will meet with hundreds of Bay Area youth at today’s
landmark summit, spearheaded by MBKA. The event is open to all young
adults in the area but will specifically focus on overcoming barriers to
employment that disproportionately impact BMoCs between the ages of 18
to 29.
