Our collaboration with CTN has given our volunteers at Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) an opportunity to educate our elders on using digital devices and the internet. This has allowed our elders to discover new worlds that they could never before imagine. Thank you CTN for this partnership!

CTN has trained nearly 300 of our affordable housing residents in basic digital literacy, and we hope to serve hundreds more! CTN is highly effective in training seniors, people with developmental disabilities, and residents with various language needs. SAHA, and most importantly our residents, are tremendously grateful for the bridge to greater independence that CTN has provided.

Without CTN, our clients would not have been afforded opportunities to address their fears regarding technology. CTN has diligently donated, introduced, informed and educated our clients about technological devices, computer programs and internet resources.

Join The Movement


We would not exist without our partners. They provide essential connections to communities that lack digital literacy. Our partners also provide the key context that shapes our training. Our network of partners consists of senior centers, housing developments, libraries, and social service agencies.


The need for technology training has never been greater and volunteers are an absolute necessity in closing the digital divide. Volunteer trainers enable us to serve exponentially more people throughout San Francisco in the languages the learners speak.


In meeting the digital literacy needs of our underserved communities, we rely on sponsorships, grants, and individual donations. Be part of a movement that is closing the digital divide and support our work today!
