Partnered with the Mitchell Park and Rinconada libraries, we have been hosting events to help seniors learn how to use computer and mobile apps.
We saw that many seniors had technical difficulties with their devices such as phones, computers and iPads. We are organizing events focusing on helping seniors solve their technological problems and encouraging them to solve their own problems using technology (e.g. shop for groceries online, book Ubers, search the Web and YouTube). The following places we host events are:

We have been volunteering at Avendidas, a non-profit agency in Palo Alto helping mid-Peninsula seniors live well and learn to maintain their independence. We have been helping seniors with their technical problems, ranging from computer issues to potential virus detections. Additionally, we volunteered at the 15th Annual Caregiver Conference on November 10 2018.
