Webinar: Educational access for everyone inside prisons
Learn how to scale digital education for incarcerated individuals using wireless, handheld devices.
Webinar sponsored by Amazon Web Services
Before COVID-19 removed all in-person instruction, about 1 in 5 people who are incarcerated got access to education, but that is now rapidly changing ... for the better. Edovo, a mission-driven enterprise, is making digital education and self-improvement tools a daily reality. Over the past years it helped fuel the growth of wireless connectivity and personal handheld devices in prison nationwide, and in a few short years ahead, everyone who is incarcerated will be able to have free daily access.
By carefully navigating the corrections landscape, Edovo is uniquely positioned to deploy a platform that will not only enable education on all devices, but virtually and securely connect mentors, teachers and volunteers directly into the self-improvement journey. For the first time, educators and service providers will not be fighting to get inside, but figuring out how to scale.
