Tablet and Cell Phone Training

It’s never too late to learn to surf! This is the goal of the Silver Surfers Project, a unique initiative that began by supporting the social and intellectual participation of seniors in our community through the shared use of iPad technology. Trained volunteers offer small group and one-on-one sessions that include a variety of entertaining activities.

  • Surf the Internet
  • Set up an email account
  • Chat with loved ones
  • Play online games
  • Learn how to download apps
  • Explore the features of the camera
  • And so much more

If you are curious about tablets/cameras or have recently acquired a new device and need help, this program is for you. OR if you are “tech savvy” and would like to become a Silver Surfers Project Volunteer contact us to apply. You can help unlock some great communication tools for seniors who are otherwise isolated.
