Our Mission

Raleigh SeniorTechEd is an all volunteer organization dedicated to providing adults with education and access to computer technology, including tablets and smartphones,  at locations in  Raleigh  and Knightdale.  Our courses are designed for individual attention via hands-on experience with the objective of building  confidence for new users and enhancing the skills of more experienced users. Our program is attuned to the specific needs of adults, to enable them to enjoy and use the  latest technologies on their laptops, tablets and smartphones.

We offer small group classes on a variety of subjects, ranging from the very basics  to more advanced topics. We will teach you to use your devices for games, email, music, research,  to look up medical information,  to check  the credentials for  your doctor or hospital, etc.

Each class has a maximum capacity of only 8 people, so everyone benefits from personal attention and instruction. Manuals and/or handouts are provided and note-taking is highly encouraged. A $5  Open Workshop to help solve your technology problem,  answer questions, or for practice of class exercises  is available from 1:30 to 3:30 pm on the 1st and 3rd Monday afternoons at our Knightdale location and on  the 2nd and 4th Monday afternoons at St. James United Methodist Church. Open Help Workshops will be scheduled for  the A. E. Finley YMCA, on the 1st Friday from 10am to Noon. (Note: There are no Workshops during the months of July and August. Workshops will resume after Labor Day).

Raleigh SeniorTechEd provides volunteer opportunities within the organization, where volunteers  enjoy  peer-to-peer fellowship and interaction  as they help others learn new technologies.

Raleigh SeniorTechEd is a 501(c)3 organization. Donations are tax-deductible.  We welcome all students or volunteers and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender expression, national or ethnic origin in any of our activities.

SeniorTechEd makes the News! See us on  a segment of ABC11 TV noon news.    Or look at WRAL’s story on how  SeniorTechEd is helping to bridge the technology barrier between generations.

Our Spring  semester has concluded.  During the months of July and August there are no scheduled classes or Open Help workshops as our volunteers will be busy maintaining our classroom laptops to be sure they are up-to-date and ready to go for the Fall semester. Our instructors are developing some exciting new  educational offerings  such as Using your Samsung Tablet, and Cutting the Cord (a class looking at ways to reduce the cost of cable TV), and new Genealogy classes.  We will resume classes after Labor Day with the new Fall schedule available in August for the September to December semester. We wish all of our current (and hopefully future!) students a safe and relaxing summer and look forward to seeing you in the Fall for some fun computer training!

Our Spring semester has concluded. Please check back with us in August for our  Fall schedule  for classes beginning after Labor Day.

Course descriptions are available for current and future classes.
Classes will be scheduled at the Knightdale Recreation Center (KNDRC) , the St. James United Methodist Church (SJUMC) and at our newest location, the A.E. Finley YMCA

Have fun while helping others learn today’s technology.  Join us and be part of our team!
