Today I’m honored to have Teresa Valenzuela and Gary Knight from the San Diego Futures Foundation. And today, we’ll be going head first into the digital divide, specific to our county and how local members in our community (me included) can be involved in these initiatives.
Welcome Teresa and Gary!
- Could you give folks like me who are new to your org a rundown of how/why sdfutures.org came about?
- Teresa, what compelled you to reach out for this conversation today?
- Let’s break down the San Diego demographics which require the most care in terms of computers, education, ISP – are there certain cities/municipalities you find yourself often servicing more than others?
- Your services are quite extensive (e.g. Computers, Training, IT Services, Recycling, etc.), which area could use the most help at this point?
- How has the pandemic impacted your mission?
- Our mission at San Diego Futures Foundation is to improve lives in San Diego County by making information technology available to underserved populations by providing technology equipment, training, support, IT outsourcing, and digital media services to Nonprofit organizations, disadvantaged small businesses, low-income households, people with disabilities, and seniors. SDFF is working hard to bridge the digital divide in our community.
- What keeps you up at night as it pertains to moving forward with sdfutures.org?
- How can the listeners of this community make an immediate impact?
- Final thoughts (e.g. things on your mind, ways to reach out, etc.)
