Help senior citizens learn digital literacy skills (COVID-friendly)

Open Opportunity



EPIK is a nonprofit focused on collaborative #UseTech4Good efforts.

Cyber-Seniors is a virtual/do-from-home service opportunity that enables students to help senior citizens with using computers and other digital tools. The program was designed originally for face-to-face mentoring, but has adapted to allow for all service opportunities to be done remotely during COVID.

During COVID, seniors have become even more isolated than ever, but technology can help them feel more connected -- if they know how to use it. Often it just takes someone with a little time and love to help them learn to navigate digital tools to connect with family, take care of life needs (banking, online shopping, telemedicine), and more.

As a trained Mentor, you can also help older adults sign up for the Cyber-Seniors service, which includes not only digital training opportunities, but online webinars and workshops. 

For senior citizens who are not yet comfortable with technology, they can call toll-free at 844-217-3057, where volunteers can help senior citizens get started.
