Abstract:

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and the applications they power have become increasingly important tools to achieve the goals of children's advocates and the constituencies they serve, generally low-income and underserved children and their families. The Children's Partnership surveyed the Web sites of 55 children's organizations across the country to determine how they are using technology to achieve their missions and to explore the landscape of activity around youth and technology in children's advocacy. This report details the results.
