My Digital Life

My Digital Life is an online, in-school digital literacy program designed for 6th – 9th graders. The program is offered free of charge to every school district in Virginia, Kentucky and California – states that Neustar calls home. This program, a partnership between Neustar and EverFi, covers key digital literacy subjects, including how a computer works, the benefits and pitfalls of social networking, the dangers of texting while driving, and how to pursue careers in technology. Over 38,000 students from more than 330 schools have participated in the program, with over 22,500 already completing the program and getting certified.


Green Initiatives

Neustar searches for simple and innovative programs that allow us to create a sustainable society and corporation. Conservation and recycling efforts can be seen at all of our offices around the world, and our Headquarters building received LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council in recognition of the company's commitment to managing its energy consumption, water efficiency and material use during the design and construction process. Our Green Data Center Strategy includes many eco-friendly systems, such as airflow controls and power usage efficiencies that help lower costs. Additionally, Neustar has been chosen by DotGreen Registry Corporation, a nonprofit public benefit corporation, to provide the registry and DNS (Domain Name System) services required to support the .green global Top-Level Domain (TLD).

Year Up

Neustar participates in Year Up, an intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skill development, college credits, and corporate internships. Since we became involved with Year Up, we’ve had 26 interns, eight of which have been hired full-time.
