We need YOU to help adults connect and apply to employment opportunities online, by assisting them in using the internet and accessing online job applications.

CTN trains and places volunteers in community centers, and low-income housing sites, across San Francisco to assist learners as computer tutors!

This particular opportunity is to assist the re-entry population (individuals previously involved with the criminal justice system) apply for job opportunities. This opportunity is with a designated Specialized Access Point of San Francisco's Office of Economic & Workforce Development. Only basic computer skills required and experience in employment related activities (searching online, submitting applications, etc). What is more important is that you are patient, friendly, and interested in supporting individuals who are searching for employment online!

What you will do:

  • Commit to a weekly tutoring shift.
  • Act as a resource and guide, helping individuals learn how to find resources and information relating to employment.
  • Build relationships with a diverse group while honing your teaching skills.

Description

DIGITAL SKILLS TRAINING
Raising the Level of Digital Literacy: CTN works with community partners to provide FREE access to computers, the internet, and skilled instructors. However, with the rise in ownership of tablets and smartphones-among seniors in particular-many training sessions now help people optimize the use of their own device.

CONNECT @ HOME
Getting More Households Online: Sometimes it simply isn’t feasible for someone to go to a library or community center to learn basic computer skills. Therefore, CTN works in partnership to help low-income families and older adults get connected to internet at home.

DEVELOPING DIGITAL LEADERS
Creating Community-Tech Champions: CTN believes that for projects to be sustainable, there must be people who are dedicated to the cause and take a lead in their community
