Connected to life
“Connected to Life” is a one-of-a-kind program that supports and teaches senior citizens how to use smartphones as a means of strengthening their social and familial ties while boosting their self-confidence and sense of independence in the Information Age.
The program matches senior citizens with fellow seniors as well as with hundreds of high school and university students from around the country who coach them on the use of smartphones. It has been shown that youth teaching technology to seniors fosters generational connections while promoting a happier, more confident lifestyle among seniors. In one year alone, almost 800 senior citizens in over 20 cities were coached on how to use a smartphone.
