My good friend Anya (Smith 2012!) just was awarded a fellowship at the San Francisco Network Ministries. She will be working mostly in the The Tenderloin Tech Lab–one of the programs run by the San Francisco Network Ministries.
“The Tenderloin Tech Lab is the Tenderloin’s only technology center specializing in adult computer and employment skills training, which aids nearly 1,000 homeless and low-income clients each year in overcoming the barriers to employment and accessing technology. Through our partnership with San Francisco Network Ministries, we offer free intensive computer classes, one-on-one tutoring, job search counseling and life skills courses, all designed specifically for the learning styles of adults struggling with poverty, addiction, mental health challenges or homelessness.”
I am adding this to our recent study group discussion as another way of looking at children (or adults) who are “raised on technology,” and what can come of knowing this language intimately.
