Welcome to Community Connections:

Community Connections is a technology-based service learning program conducted by the University of San Francisco Computer Science department. We work with community partners in San Francisco and Peru to help bridge the digital divide by providing computer support, troubleshooting, training, and technical expertise. In doing so, we strive to provide our students with practical, hands-on experience and an appreciation of the importance and value of service to the community and advance USF's mission of "Educating Minds and Hearts to Change the World."

We believe that a potential consequence of the 'information revolution' is the development of a digital divide. As computers and information technology become a greater and more important part of our our lives and society, those individuals, communities, and countries without access to this technology or the training to use this technology effectively will be left further and further behind. Community Connections is an attempt to do our small part to address this concern.
