CFY, a national non-profit organization based in New York City, is a leader in using technology to improve learning opportunities for low-income students. CFY’s approach addresses the learning students do not only in their classrooms, but also in their homes. We are unique in that we operate both “in the cloud” (through PowerMyLearning.com, a free K-12 online education platform) and “on the ground” (through our Digital Learning Program, which works hands-on with all three of the constituents that impact student achievement: teachers, parents and the students themselves). CFY’s PowerMyLearning platform recently received significant support from three of the nation’s most prominent funders: the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. In addition, CFY’s Digital Learning Program has grown to be one of the largest of its kind, serving more than 50,000 families from 100 schools nationwide and demonstrating significant impact on student achievement, student engagement, parental involvement, and broadband adoption.
