Older Adults and Access to Technology 

Be a Peer Coach for Older Adults PosterAs technology changes, we strive to use new solutions to serve the local community even better. 

As the funding for technology training for nonprofits changes, we create alternative approaches to sustain service to our community.

The project builds on the ConnectKW technology training sessions to support older adults in three community locations to become peer coaches. The training will be customized for computer and Internet basics, use of peripherals and assistive technology, as well as access to on-line information sources. 

The project is done in partnership with the First United Church and KW AccessAbility and funded by the Ministry Responsible for Seniors Affairs of Ontario.  Read more about Older Adults and Access to Technology Project.
