There is always a ton of social good stuff going on. Read on as I'm sharing a few bits of info including job openings that have come in since the last newsletter!




SFTech4Good April Event
April 29: Tech and Teen Mental Health 
Join us at the Google Community Space on the evening of April 29th where we'll learn how social media and online engagement can be tools for good.

Social media, gaming, and other online engagement are deeply intertwined with the lives of today’s teenagers, and this presents both tremendous opportunities and significant dangers. How can quickly-evolving technology be harnessed to improve the mental and emotional health of teens, and what are the best practices for creating safe online spaces? A panel of experts from the nonprofit and tech sectors will share their insights and experiences, discussing new models that engage teens while facing the challenges of the modern digital landscape




Note: The official address of the Google Community Space is 188 The Embarcadero. However, the entrance is at 177 Steuart Street between Mission and Howard Streets.
