This was our last week of our Hybrid CitySites! So much was accomplished and so many lessons were learned for the next semester of programming! We're taking a break in the next month and a half to reflect and plan for the spring. Thank you to everyone who joined us weekly for programming! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to all our older adults and student volunteers for a successful pilot of Digital Dividends! With everyone's patience and effort, we all have learned so much from one another. Can't wait until we meet again in the new year!

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
