The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), United States Department of Commerce, profiled CFY in a blog post celebrating Digital Learning Day on February 5th, 2014. The NTIA lauded CFY’s work saying:
“One organization leading the way is CFY, a non-profit that used BTOP funding to provide digital literacy training, digital learning assistance and computers for low-income middle school students and their families in high-poverty schools in New York City and Los Angeles.
Launched in 1999 in one South Bronx neighborhood, CFY today is a national model for digital learning. It offers workshops that teach students and parents how to use the Internet to access online educational resources that promote learning in subjects such as math and reading. The program also trains families on its own free digital learning platform, PowerMyLearning.org, which helps teachers, students and parents find thousands of carefully selected academic activities, videos and games from across the Web that are designed to make learning fun.”
