Why Get Connected:
- Stay Connected: In today's digital age, staying connected with loved ones, managing appointments, and accessing essential information online is vital. Our program equips seniors with the skills to stay connected with ease.
- Enhance Digital Literacy: Learning the basics of computer technology opens up a world of opportunities. Seniors can explore new interests, access online resources, and even communicate with distant family and friends.
- Bridge Generational Gaps: Our program fosters meaningful connections between seniors and high school students. It's a mutually beneficial experience, as seniors gain valuable tech skills while students gain hands-on teaching experience.
