Description

Cyber-Seniors is an intergenerational program that trains young people to be tech mentors for senior citizens. The ability to use online communication applications to stay connected is vital for older adults and other vulnerable people. Helping a senior learn to use transactional websites to order groceries, pharmaceuticals, food delivery, etc., will make a big difference in allowing them to remain self-sufficient from the safety of their home. In the best of times, digital literacy can be life-altering; in times like these, it can be life-saving.Also, please help us by letting any Seniors you know that they can:
• register online for a group session or one-on-one tech-support by visiting our website at www.cyberseniors.org; or
• access the over 1200 training tutorials (soon available in Spanish and French) and the Cyber-Seniors discussion forum by calling us at 1-844-217-3057 to register.

To register, please go directly to the Cyber Seniors website to sign-on to be a mentor: https:/cyberseniors.org/volunteers
