Computer classes at NeighborNest

In exchange for a tax deal, Twitter recently debuted NeighborNest, a community learning center across the street from its Civic Center headquarters. Monday on our program, host David Onek explores Twitter's plan for the center, and whether the services it offers -- like coding classes and daycare -- can meet the needs of residents of the nearby Tenderloin. 

Guests: 

Caroline Barlerin, Head of Community Outreach and Philanthropy at Twitter

Kami Griffiths, Executive Director and Co-Founder at Community Technology Network

Erica Kisch, Executive Director at Compass Family Services
