Transforming lives through digital literacy.

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!

The Oakland Public Library has been a close partner with Community Technology Network (CTN) since 2013. Through our partnership, we’re supporting young people in the acquisition of essential life and job skills, while changing the digital literacy landscape across Oakland.  I couldn’t think of two better causes to work towards in partnership with CTN!

CTN has been an invaluable partner for the YWCA. Most importantly, CTN has recruited several experienced, bilingual tutors for our 12 computer lab that serves the Chinatown senior community. Additionally, the monthly “Brag and Borrow” breakfast meetings have been a great platform for networking, idea incubation, and community support. Thanks CTN!
