Some things get better with age -- and other stuff gets harder. When seniors feel disconnected from technology, it can have a huge impact on their physical and mental health.
That's why they need you, the tech experts (tech-sperts?)! Sign up for one of the campaigns below to use your skills to improve the lives of older adults.
We <3 Mentor Up
AARP Foundation knows better than anyone the challenges that millions of seniors face each day. Many have trouble affording the food they need or the maintenance needed to keep their homes safe, and many struggle to stay connected to friends and family. They are inspired by the thousands of young people who have given their time to “Mentor Up.” Through the service and generosity of thousands of young people like you, they've been able to get more than 20,000 older adults “wired” through technology and delivered more than 700,000 handmade Valentines to seniors in need.
Teach tech to an older adult, send a pic of the two of you in action, and -- bam! -- you'll enter to win a $10,000 scholarship.
AND, for each campaign you complete, you earn another entry to win. So complete one campaign = one chance to win. Complete 3 campaigns = 3 chances to win. (And so on!)
