On Sunday, September 8, CTN had a table at Getting There Together, an event organized by the Coalition of Agencies Serving the Elderly (CASE). The overall purpose of the event was to increase visibility and promote services for older adults and adults living with disabilities in the San Francisco area. The event included an open-air gymnasium with line dancing and chair yoga and other activities to show the importance of senior fitness.
Our table included information about classes offered through SF Connected, a partnership with the Department of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS). Our trainers can be found in over 20 sites across the city, and our goal is to train older adults on basic digital literacy skills, email use, connecting with friends and family, and finding resources for jobs. We offer drop-in time in the computer center as well as structured classes.
We’re also looking for more volunteers! If you’re passionate about helping to increase the digital literacy skills of people in the digital divide, complete our online application here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
