Computer skills and online access are essential both to access information and to connect with friends and family. Through the City’s SF Connected program, CLC works together with the Department of Aging and Adult Services and other community agencies to close the digital divide, ensuring that seniors and people with disabilities don’t get left behind.
Our trainers offer free classes and one-on-one tutoring in English, Spanish, and Chinese at senior centers, adult day health centers, and other community sites as part of the city's SF Connected Program. See our calendar for current times and locations. As part of our program, CLC also introduces participants to accessible technologies that can increase communication options for people with vision, hearing and other disabilities.
Drop by 360 Valencia Street on Mondays for free one-on-one computer training and hands-on presentations in a friendly environment. We open the lab at 9am, and are usually there until 3pm. Please check our calendar for class topics.
We begin with classes on topics of interest to seniors and the disabled – social media, photography, genealogy, etc. As participants overcome fears and gain confidence, they learn to use the internet to research health, financial or transportation information and remain connected to family and friends. To learn more about available topics, bring classes to your neighborhood, or to find out about upcoming presentations, contact Judy Auda at (415) 826-3194 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of the San Francisco Department of Aging and Adult Services' SF Connected Program, Community Technology Network, Self-Help for the Elderly and Conard House also have computer training and specialty classes. To see a calendar of all free classes or for more information, go to www.sfconnected.org or call (415) 355-3555.
In addition, the San Francisco Public Library has expanded the number of computers in its branches and you can book time to use computers or to get help accessing information on-line. For a list of branch libraries with computer access, go to the San Francisco Public Library web site.
