It's so important to have aging services organizations represented at National Digital Inclusion Alliance! Older adults should be an integral part of the national digital equity conversation.

From the Community

"When 5:00 comes it’s like “what?! it’s over?!” I wish [the students] could stay longer! "
- Michelle
"It’s fun to start conversations and learn from the seniors"
- Gaetan
"I truly enjoy the students. I like hearing about them, and we all share our stories."
- Marion
"It’s beneficial, especially to that type of person that might not come out on their own to socialize. I might have been one of those people myself."
- Bob
