Raleigh SeniorTechEd is a volunteer organization dedicated to providing access to computer technologies to those over 50 years of age. Our primary mission is to provide computer education with courses starting at the introductory level and continuing to more advanced topics. In addition, Raleigh SeniorTechEd provides volunteer opportunities within the organization, allowing all who participate to enjoy peer-to-peer interaction - Seniors teaching, helping, and leading Seniors.
We offer small group classes on a variety of subjects, ranging from the very basics for brand new computer users to more advanced topics. Each class has a maximum capacity of only 9 people, so students benefit from personal attention and instruction. The objective of the courses is to build computer confidence for new users and enhance the skills of more experienced users. Our program is attuned to the specific needs of seniors, so they will be able to enjoy and use the computer for pleasure. Students learn to use the computer for games, email, music, research, looking up medical information etc.
Manuals and/or handouts are provided and note-taking is highly encouraged.
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.
