Community Technology Network
Community Technology Network (CTN) unites organizations and volunteers to transform lives through digital literacy. We believe that access to the Internet is a human right and that those without the necessary computer skills are at risk of social and economic disadvantage. In partnership with open-access community computer centers across the San Francisco Bay Area, CTN delivers free computer skills programs to those in need. CTN also provides its partners with support, guidance, and resources to improve their digital literacy programs. At this time, a large proportion of CTN’s activity is focused on our SF Connected program, which serves older adults and adults with disabilities at senior centers throughout San Francisco. Read more about our programs at www.ctnbayarea.org. CTN engages approximately 200 volunteer computer trainers yearly, including students, working adults, job seekers, and retirees. Volunteers provide digital literacy training and tutoring to our community partners’ clients and/or additional services to CTN directly. Volunteer trainers are central to our organization, providing vital services that are key to our mission.
