Description:

Given the opportunity to provide computer training to seniors in our community, through the GRANT, the Parry Sound Public Library created an intergenerational platform that reached over 350 seniors in eight weeks. And we did it with less than two weeks to plan.
Want to facilitate an effective program to reach the greatest number of seniors in your community? We can help. At the Parry Sound Public Library, we took a simple idea – to provide computer training for senior citizens—and turned it into an innovative and successful program with limitless possibilities for extensions and growth. We even won an award for it; the IMPACT Award for Public Innovation from the Parry Sound Muskoka Community Network.
From program inception, planning, fulfillment, to reflection, we will provide you with all the tools necessary to create your own fun and innovative senior computer training.
Come and see how we did it and come away with a simple plan that you and your staff can execute.
