Community leaders gathered at the San Francisco Community Youth Center (CYC) today to announce new computer classes available for both parents and teenagers. The Computer Clubhouse and Technical Academy was made possible thanks to a $50,000 donation by AT & T.
President of San Francisco Board of Supervisors David Chiu says we hope the youth will “gain technical skills that will hopefully allow them to be folks who not only will be employed by future Twitters of SF and Google, but hopefully there will be young people here who will be starting those companies.”
The teenagers at the CYC will be able to learn computer graphics, job skills, music and sound editing, as well as video editing skills in the computer lab.
Parents who have never used computers are welcome to sign up for the classes. They can better understand why their children spend so
much time at the computer every day. More importantly, parents can learn about website safety issues, how to monitor the websites browsed by their children, and how to block inappropriate websites.
