At Yola, not only do we love helping our users make a website, we’re also passionate about giving back to our community. On Saturday June 19th, we participated at a tech fair hosted by the Tenderloin Technology Lab (TTL). This fair, which takes place in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, CA, is free for the community and aims to help low-income San Franciscans learn valuable technology skills. We helped students achieve this goal by teaching a class on web design using Yola.
The response was positive and many were surprised by how easy it was to get up and running. “This is so easy – I can’t believe I have my website,” said one of the students. The TTL also provides a state-of-the-art technology training center with 38 computer work stations, so that students from the class can go back and continue working on their websites. We’re looking forward to helping out again at the next technology fair! If you’re also interested in volunteering, check out the TTL website for more information.
