"Twitter has moved a one step closer toward opening a $1 million learning center where company employees will teach tech skills to some of the city’s poorest residents. They’ve got a location now for what’s being dubbed The NeighborNest. It’s right across the street from Twitter HQ at the Essex Fox Plaza, 1390 Market Street. And they’ve got a projected opening date: Sometime next summer.

“We’ve put down deep, enduring roots in San Francisco and are committed to transforming lives right here in the neighborhood where we work,” Costolo said in a statement to The Chronicle. “I’ve been impressed with Compass Family Services’ track record and can’t think of a better partner for this.”

"Twitter will partner with a nonprofit serving San Francisco's homeless families to design a learning center where company employees will teach tech skills to some of the city's poorest residents.

The microblogging company's investment in the learning center, dubbed the Twitter Neighborhood Nest, will be "north of $1 million" over the course of the multiyear partnership, Colin Crowell, Twitter vice president of global public policy, told The Chronicle.

"This will be a major breakthrough for our families," said Erica Kisch, executive director of Compass Family Services, which serves 3,500 homeless families. "To make it in the world today, just to make it through school, you need these skills."
