In early 2015, Prince Royce rejoined the Sprint family, where he once worked and made the money to help jump start his dream musical career. Now Prince Royce and Sprint are working together to help young kids achieve their own aspirations by helping them get connected.

The 1Million Project is a Sprint Foundation initiative with support from Sprint. It was launched to bridge the digital divide and help close the “Homework Gap.” The new program will offer free mobile devices and free high-speed wireless internet access to schools to benefit low-income high school students complete school projects and homework, communicate with teachers and mentors, as well as apply for scholarships, college and even jobs.

“I am proud to support Sprint and the Sprint Foundation in their efforts to benefit 1 million high school students, providing the necessary tools and resources needed to succeed in this day and age,” said Prince Royce, award winning artist. “Over 5 million U.S. households with student-aged kids don’t have internet access at home. Together, we invite everyone to come out and support this great cause and help actively work towards bringing connectivity to all.”

“Without internet access at home, millions of American kids are left without the resources they need to reach their full potential,” said Marcelo Claure, CEO of Sprint. “However, with the support of our customers and our Sprint employees and friends, the 1Million Project will help to give these kids a brighter future. I thank Prince Royce for joining our initiative and lending his talents, and am grateful to all of the customers and fans who will help support the 1Million Project.”

Starting December 3, local fans and community members will be able to visit any of the LA Sprint Stores listed below to donate a used mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.) to the 1Million Project and register for a pair of tickets to the private show while supplies last.
