HOUSTON – Kindergarten through 12th grade students who are still in need of internet access for schoolwork can visit some Houston-area Boys & Girls Clubs to obtain free access to Wi-Fi, thanks to a partnership with Comcast.

In a press release, Comcast said it will provide safe Wi-Fi hotspots to help lower income students get online so they can participate in their distance learning classes and get their homework done.

Kevin Hattery, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston, said in a statement he hopes the initiative will make significant progress in students’ ability to stay current with their schoolwork and not fall further behind.

Installation of these hotspots began last week, according to Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston.

The Houston-area locations -- called “Lift Zones” -- are shown in the map below.

Johnny Mitchell Club in Galveston - 4420 Avenue P, Galveston
