What does educational programming cost?

The cost varies greatly depending on the length of time, the materials used and the number of participants. A rough estimation is $100 per hour of programming for a group of 10 people. DANEnet has developed relationships with local businesses and foundations and will work in partnership with organizations to secure funding, as needed.
