Seniors in I.T. is a dynamic student-run volunteer organization. We strive to provide senior citizens with the knowledge and skills to operate in this new technology-based world. Seniors in I.T. aims to provide seniors with a fundamental understanding of technology so that they are able to achieve a variety of personal aspirations such as:  Reconnect with family and friends via e-mail or other programs such as skype Draft letters using a word processor Broaden their knowledge using search engines, image searches, video repositories etc. Utilize a digital camera to share pictures with family and friends. We strive to give our volunteers a fulfilling and enriching inter-generational learning opportunity. In doing so, our volunteers develop their leadership, communication and interpersonal skills. We were recently profiled in the London Free Press, check out the article at the link below: http://www.lfpress.com/2012/11/23/its-the-only-club-at-the-school-that-partners-with-retired-londoners
