COVID-19 notes:

  • We have relaxed criteria for posting volunteer opportunities due to the urgent need for COVID-19 Response. Volunteers are responsible for confirming the legitimacy of the group or organization(s) they are working with. Never hand over money or confidential information to groups looking for volunteers.
  • Please confirm that the organization you want to volunteer with can ensure your safety.

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.

Step 1: Get a FREE membership to the Cyber-Seniors Mentor Training program (6 online training videos and quizzes) at cyberseniors.org/student-membership
Step 2: Sign-up to help seniors to learn tech.

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.

Together we will make a difference in bridging the digital divide and helping seniors be more connected.
