The free one-on-one tutoring sessions are geared towards seniors who have never used computers before or who have only a basic knowledge of computers. Each learner is partnered with a community volunteer tutor and, after completing a computer skills self-assessment, works on basic skills such as using a mouse, saving files, searching the Internet, and setting up an email account.
In the fall of 2013, LASS set up a Cyber Seniors Computer Tutoring Centre at the Seniors’ Drop-in Centre in downtown Salmon Arm and has been running the tutoring program from the centre since then. In 2014 we added the Salmon Arm branch of the Okanagan Regional Library as a secondary location for tutoring sessions, and in the fall of 2015 a third Cyber Seniors location will be added at the new Copper Island Seniors’ Resource Centre in Blind Bay.
“[I] felt very comfortable in learning and I’d recommend this program to anyone learning a computer. Thank you so much for this opportunity.”A happy Cyber Seniors learner
