STEM: Teach a Tech Class to Older Adults (ONLINE or In-person)

Armed with a ready-made curriculum, you and other talented volunteers will teach elderly citizens basic smartphone and computer features so they can better connect with friends and family. This 90-minute class takes place both online and in-person as indicated in the activity details. The in-person classes are also in the Greater Seattle Area, typically on the Eastside.

This program has taught over 1500 seniors and counting. We typically have 30-50 seniors attend each tech class.
