Cyber-Senior program topic at Kiwanis gathering
SAN MARCOS: Kiwanis hosts Cyber-Senior program coordinator
The Lake San Marcos Kiwanis Club hosted Chania Mitchell, program coordinator for nonprofit Cyber-Seniors, a nationwide program that has been providing seniors with technology training since 2015. Mitchell, a local Marine wife, described how the intergenerational, volunteer-based program works.
Young people receive lessons to serve as digital mentors and senior citizens receive free technology training for online tasks such as ordering groceries, scheduling medical appointments over video and using a smartphone. Cyber-Seniors established a partnership with the Best Buy teen tech center and the San Marcos Boys and Girls Club.
