Cyber-Seniors: Connecting Generations Inc.
Cyber-Seniors’ mission is to bridge the digital divide and connect generations through technology. It does so through the development and dissemination of resources that enable community organizations to provide tech-training for senior citizens using an intergenerational, youth volunteer model. Youth are provided with lessons and learning activities to train them to act as digital mentors, and senior citizens gain access to effective technology training and intergenerational communities that keep them socially connected and engaged.
Cyber-Seniors began as a high-school project in 2009 which inspired an award-winning documentary film that has been broadcast in 40 countries and screened in over 500 communities world-wide. ‘Cyber-Seniors : Connecting Generations’, was incorporated as a non-profit organization in January 2015 in response to requests from community-based organizations to replicate the Cyber-Seniors model.
