Community & Education
Since its incorporation more than 25 years ago, Cablevision has embraced community partnership. From high-speed Internet access for schools and education initiatives to programming and the volunteer efforts of its employees, Cablevision lends its knowledge, experience and resources to help young people and improve the communities it serves.

Here are some examples:

Power to Learn
Cablevision believes that access to information leads to a powerful learning experience. For a quarter-century, Cablevision has provided free cable television service to public and private schools throughout its service communities, paving the way for educators to incorporate hundreds of hours of commercial-free educational programming into their school curricula.

With technology as today’s leading tool, Cablevision again responded creating Power to Learn, a multi-faceted initiative dedicated to integrating the Internet into education to enhance learning.

Power to Learn’s online learning community, powertolearn.com, contains excellent resources and content for students, teachers, administrators and parents. In addition, through its efforts, Power to Learn enables and encourages technology to be used as a supplement to classroom learning in New York metropolitan area schools.

Power to Learn is the most comprehensive education initiative available to tri-state communities, fully integrating technology into the classroom through broadband Internet access and online learning supplements, for use both in and out of the classroom.

Connectivity

Power to Learn began by wiring New York metropolitan area schools and libraries with high-speed Internet access. Since launching in 1998, Power to Learn has wired more than 1,300 schools and libraries — connecting more than 500,000 students and teachers to the Internet.

Community

Cablevision set out to guarantee that teachers, students and parents knew where on the Web they could go for education content. The company developed powertolearn.com, a local portal that offers teachers and students everything from access to experts like Dr. James Watson and Katie Couric to standards-based lesson plans and multimedia learning units.

Rainbow Media in the Community

For that reason, we are committed to creating unique and targeted on and off-air programs, which utilize our portfolio of businesses to educate and inspire people of all ages and geographic regions.
