The Native American Family Journey is committed to alerting organizations and businesses like yours that we must accelerate the effort to remove this digital divide. Our efforts have to be focused on communicating to Native American Families on the negative side of the Digital Divide that these technologies have the power to change their lives. They need to know that if these technologies are understood and embraced that they can provide significant help to open the doors that have been closed to them to this point in their lives. We must convince this very important segment of our society that by taking proactive steps, they can build a technology path to a much fuller, healthier, and happier life. This is a great opportunity but it will only happen with a lot of effort on their part with support from organizations like yours.
The digital divide appears to have a high correlation to income and level of education that is no great surprise but the exciting thing about crossing the digital divide and having families make this commitment to technology in their homes and lives and rearranging how they spend some of their time, is that it can put them on a new and positive path that can make a dramatic difference in their future and quality of life.
Your organization needs to discuss making the commitment to host a Native American Family Journey program.
