The City of Niagara Falls, in collaboration with the provincial government, is offering a new technology training program targeted toward older adults.
Cyber Seniors is a six-week, hands-on program to be delivered at MacBain Community Centre this fall.
Classes will cover topics such as cyber safety, email tips, navigating smartphones and tablets, and a beginner’s guide to social media.
The City is looking for volunteer tech mentors to facilitate the classes, acting as a resource on all things technology for older adults.
The city encourages local youths to become a tech mentor as it will help to build their resumes or complete high school community service hours while honing leadership, communication, time management and decision-making skills.
