Mission Statement

Community Technology Network ( CTN) programs help ensure that all Bay Area residents have the skills necessary to use digital technology and close the digital divide.

Description

CTN's programs help ensure that all Bay Area residents have the skills necessary to use digital technology. Senior citizens and adults with disabilities are vastly overrepresented in the digital divide due to quickly expanding technology and a lack of resources available to them.

To bridge this divide, CTN connects volunteers who have basic computer abilities with older adults seeking support. Volunteers are a part of the SF Connected program (formerly called BTOP ), a program of the City of San Francisco’s Department of Aging and Adult Services. We at CTN believe that seniors and adults with disabilities should not be excluded from the cost savings, knowledge, and fun the Internet brings.

Our volunteers provide free computer classes and help seniors and people with disabilities find information, stay connected, and access resources online. Volunteers work in technology labs in over 25 senior centers and senior housing facilities in San Francisco and provided basic computer skills, online communication and Internet Safety,
