POTTER COUNTY EDUCATION COUNCIL AND TRI-CO CONNECTIONS CONTINUE PARTNERSHIP FOR SENIORS 2 SENIORS PROGRAM


The Potter County Education Council, Tri-Co Connections, the Potter County Human Services Area Agency on Aging, and our local school districts are continuing to team up to implement a county-wide program called Seniors 2 Seniors. 

This program is teaching basic computer skills, digital literacy, and cybersecurity to senior citizens so that they have the skills and knowledge to utilize the many benefits of high-speed Internet, which can include:
•    Staying connected to friends and family
•    Sending and receiving emails
•    Using search engines to navigate the Internet
•    Utilizing telemedicine (healthcare from home)
•    Using on-line banking
•    Shopping from home (for items not available in the local area) 

As a part of this program, the Potter County Education Council, Tri-Co Connections and the Area Agency on Aging have local high school students volunteering to provide on-site support to each of the adults who participates in the course. The area high school students are a logical resource to support the senior citizens as they learn about the Internet since this generation of students has grown up with technology as a part of their daily lives. They are a true “tech savvy” population and can provide valuable support to older adults who are learning to navigate and use new technological skills and information.

Course Schedule:
The Seniors 2 Seniors technology course is being offered at each of the four senior centers in Potter County on a six-week rotating schedule, meeting on Wednesdays (following the school districts’ calendars), throughout the 2022-2023 school years. The course will meet at the Ulysses Senior Center (September 14th – October 19th) from 12:45 – 2:15 pm. and then at the Galeton Senior Center (October 26th – December 7th, time to be announced; no class November 23rd).

Registration:
The registration deadline for the Ulysses course is Wednesday, September 7th. Register yourself, a parent, or grandparent by calling the Potter County Education Council at (814) 274-4877 or by stopping by the Potter County Education’s Coudersport office at 5 Water Street. Registration for the Galeton course will open in September.
