Didn’t know much about technology

I now have more confidence communicating with my child's school and I didn't' know much about technology, but now I can even download an app.

Valuable for the older generation

T4T is very valuable for the older generation like me! It is a wonderful project to take advantage of.

As a former teacher…

I really enjoyed talking with the young people. It is [nice] to have the tables turned -- the kids being the teachers. As a former teacher, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Was pleased with the patience the kids had with us older folks. Keep doing this. It is wonderful on many levels.

This is so special

[The students] are fun to be with, and they don't make us feel at all stupid. This is so special...to be connected with young people is a great gift.

I can keep up with the changing times

I feel fortunate to have T4T present the new technology information so I can keep up with the changing of the times.

AHA Moment

High school teachers when they hear kids go, like, “aha”, like, they say, I love it when I hear kids say that, when they have that AHA moment. Now I kind of get a sense of that too…when I’m helping someone figure out a new challenge and making progress—and they’re like “ahh I get it now!” That makes me feel good, to be able to help that discovery.

Why I Volunteer

I volunteer because I think that there’s a lot of things that—not necessarily need help—but can be improved. Nowadays a lot of kids don’t feel as attached to their community as senior citizens were and I think that we play an important part in our community.

Community Partner Testimonials

T4T at Grand Way Commons

The Technology for Tomorrow program is awesome and such a gift to the community!! The classes were offered at Grand Way for @ 10-12 seniors and they absolutely raved about it!! Carly presents the material in a very understandable fashion and the volunteers are knowledgeable and very patient and attentive. We are going to offer it again! I would highly recommend this class and am delighted to have it offered at GWC.

Exciting addition to our community

Tech 4 Tomorrow has been such an exciting addition to our community, and our residents are very happy to have such individualized attention. Residents are so eager to learn from the students that they are asking daily about the next seminar to be scheduled; many who had never used a computer before. This has truly been a fantastic pairing, and we look forward to a long term relationship.
