Older Adult (New Horizon)

The “Totally Connected” program is developed by IWOO and funded by New Horizons for Seniors Program. In weekly sessions, volunteers work with seniors on one-to-one basis to teach them how to use technology and document their stories. The purpose of this program is two fold. First, it teaches seniors computer skills, enables them to work with social media, and helps them to document their life stories.  Second, it creates a bridge between generations. Not only do young volunteers use their skills to create a positive impact in the society, but also the connection between youth and seniors creates a bond among them and improves the quality of both generations’ life.
