Once a month, the community affairs community, as well as a team of volunteers, visit a local seniors home to teach seniors how to operate various technology.
The goal for this project is to help develop local connections within the community, bridge the gap between two distinct generations, as well as provide an excellent experience for the seniors. So far, we have had one lesson in November, which was very successful!
Each volunteer partnered up with a senior and got to know one another better. Over the course of the lesson, we went over different topics including, how to operate devices, how to type with a keyboard, and how to connect to the internet, etc. In the end, the seniors improved their ability and we got the chance to make new friends. Overall, it was a great experience for both the seniors and us.
