Teens Teach Seniors How To Use Tech While Learning Valuable Job Skills

Teeniors

September 14, 2018 – Figuring out a new phone or App can be challenging, especially for those who didn’t grow up using a cell phone or laptop every day. In 2015, Teeniors was born at a startup event to meet two needs: help seniors learn how to effectively use technology and create job opportunities for youth. And this week, that simple idea was actually awarded $10,000 at the Comcast Pitch Fest, part of the New Mexico Tech Council’s #ExperienceIT.

Producer Sarah Gustavus sits down with one of the Teeniors founders, to talk about how the needs and skills of different generations can complement each other.

Producer Sarah Gustavus sat down with three members of the organization to learn more about the needs they identified and the importance of transportation in the overall health of families and the community.
