$565 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 14 people in 2 months
31590336_1534534556861937_r.jpegSenior citizens and people in disadvantaged situations are often LEFT BEHIND in today’s technologically connected world. Lack of access to learning opportunities as well as equipment can intensify the ISOLATION many needy Americans already experience.
 
SeniorNet, a 501(c)3, headquartered in Fort Myers, Florida, provides computer, mobile device and Internet education in a variety of settings across the United States and through partners in Nepal, the Netherlands, South Korea the United Kingdom, Sweden and New Zealand. Since 1986, SeniorNet's  volunteer outreach and curricula have helped more than 2.5 million people stay connected with loved ones and enjoy the benefits the Internet has to offer.
 
These are some of the ways SeniorNet’s verified classes and programs for lifelong learning work:
 
·     Keeping loved ones and caregivers updated on health and medical records via training on the Patient Portal

·     Using social media to interact and share with friends and family (grandchildren and great grandchildren) across the country 
 
·     Educating seniors on how to prepare for natural disasters such as a hurricanes
 
·     Sharing language skills and culture between seniors in assisted living communities with students in South Korea who practice speaking English
 
·     Helping Manpower SCSEP participants create resumes and look for work online
 
·     Teaching seniors how to acquire and access free, useful apps for their mobile devices to improve the quality of their lives
 
Reaching our fundraising goal means providing many more points of access (computers, screens, software, mobile devices) in places where seniors already gather in person such as YMCAs, Senior Centers, Libraries, Churches and others.  Every $1 helps.
