Founded in 2015, Cyber-Seniors is a non-profit organization whose mission is to bridge the digital divide and connect generations using technology.
We provide tech-training for senior citizens using an intergenerational volunteer model. High school and university/college students 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. As seniors become more comfortable using technology in their daily lives, they find a welcoming intergenerational online community, that serves to increase their well-being and offers them safe opportunities to engage, while continuing to embrace technology. Our model is cost effective, sustainable and benefits both seniors and young people.
Cyber-Seniors has a presence in both Canada and the United States. Staff and volunteers work together to deliver free programming to seniors across North America.
