Our Story, Our Purpose
Make Me A Prodigy is a community based program focused on tackling the entrenched barriers to technology adoption and Internet access in New Jersey and across the US. While one could easily assume that mobile and home-based computer access to the Internet has become universal, the stubborn fact remains that an estimated 100 million Americans have no access to a computer and Internet at home. We hope to help many people overcome these systemic barriers.
