About Us

Community Tech Network is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with offices in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Austin, TX. Our mission is to unite organizations and volunteers to transform lives through digital literacy.

We believe that access to the Internet is a human right, and that those without the skills to use a computer are at risk of social and economic disadvantage. Public services and essential information are increasingly moving online, and many people are unable to access these resources. Many fine organizations are working to spread Internet connectivity to the underserved, but access to technology is  only  a  partial  solution.  Connectivity needs  to be  coupled  with  digital  skills  training  that  is relevant  and delivered in a way that won’t intimidate the adult learner.

About You You  are  energetic  and   enthusiastic  about  providing  quality  digital  literacy  training  in underserved communities, often within economically and socially marginalized populations, and  in coordinating and managing critical administrative tasks. Your work style is a healthy blend of initiative and collaboration, self-direction and teamwork. You are a personable, hard-working team player who is open to learning new things, works  well  on their   own  initiative,  and  enjoys  working in  a  fast-paced  work  environment. You are also  passionate  about  digital  literacy,  public  access  to  technology, and  engaging  marginalized and/or underserved populations as part of an energetic non-profit team. The Program Coordinator position will be primarily virtual at the start and will work on programs in Northern California and Central Texas. It is anticipated that successful candidates for this position will have excellent potential for advancement within the organization.
