Connecting generations through FREE one-on-one workshops.
This Boulder based program has connected over 500 students and older adults in the last year. Amazing!
The Generation Exchange holds workshops that connect students and older adults (ages 40 and up) to exchange knowledge and understanding about technology. Student volunteers are paired one-on-one with an older adult to answer basic questions about their phones, laptops, and tablets.
Why They do it.
According to the Pew Research Center, 82% of older adults indicate needing some level of assistance using a new device (ie laptop, tablets, phones).
Generation Exchange believes in a world where no one is overwhelmed by technology. No one should feel like technology is smarter than them, or that becoming proficient with technology is out of reach.
