Young people volunteered to help connect these senior citizens to the internet, and it’s so cute
Never too young to make a difference
My grandma is terrified of computers. She refuses to learn how to save a document, will not connect to the internet, and, most adorably, calls Skype ‘Swipe’. It’s easy to imagine how daunting the whole world of computer technology can be to an older person, particularly when you’re on your own and have little support.
Another great example of young & old working together comes from Brazil. The CNA Language Institute CNA has found the perfect solution (the ‘Speaking Exchange‘) with which they kill two birds with one stone.
They match young Brazilians students who want to practice their English with senior citizens in the US via video calling. Truly brilliant.
