What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Community Tech Network's mission is to unite organizations and volunteers to transform lives through digital literacy. For 12 years, Community Tech Network has been a leading nonprofit focused on helping older adults live comfortably and safely in a digital world by providing digital devices and digital literacy training. Now that our daily lives have been disrupted by the impact of COVID-19, it is more important then ever for isolated seniors staying home for their own safety to have home internet and the skills to access it. Our new program, Home Connect, provides internet access, devices, and training to help home-bound seniors connect with family, conduct video visits with health care providers, explore job prospects, create resumes and applications and not least to combat social isolation. We work with our current (and new) partners to gather data on the connectivity needs, make the connections, and provide these vital services in a timely manner.

Digital Skills Training Program

CTN works with community partners to provide FREE access to computers, the internet, and skilled instructors. However, with the rise in ownership of tablets and smartphones—among seniors in particular—many DST sessions now help people optimize the use of their own device.

Seniors

Sometimes that simply isn’t feasible for someone to go to a library or community center to learn basic computer skills. Therefore, CTN works in partnership to help low-income families get affordable internet access at home.

CTN believes that for projects to be sustainable, there must be people who are dedicated to the cause and take a lead in their community.

The business community is vital to the campaign for digital inclusion; and digital inclusion is vital to the business community (many of which are reliant on e-commerce).
