This program is carefully designed so that participants and organizations feel supported to make technology a part of their routines. Whether you are an organization that wants to reach more seniors with your virtual programs, or a senior citizen ready to get online for the first time, Seniors Can Connect! will help you achieve your technology goals  

We work with local community partners to deliver Seniors Can Connect! and offer two approaches: 

Personal Path:

Seniors in each community receive a pre-configured device for their individual use and technology mentors accompany each participant to learn remotely at their own pace. Participants build baseline digital literacy skills and confidence over time, with the goal of becoming empowered digital citizens.
