Ready, Set, Connect!
In partnership with the Oakland Public Library, Community Technology Network provide youth leadership development and community engagement program called Ready, Set, Connect! (RSC). Since 2013 the program has developed the skills of 78 youth trainers while helping over 4,000 Oakland residents with their technology questions. RSC engages corporate mentors who provide workshops, site visits and increase youth’s professional networks. The impact from this program can transform a young person’s ability to find work and can help end the cycle of poverty that prevents them from achieving greatness.
