Connecting generations through FREE one-on-one workshops. Patient volunteers. Any device. Any question. 


We have answers.

The Generation Exchange holds workshops that connect students and older adults (ages 40 and up) to exchange knowledge and understanding about technology. Student volunteers are paired one-on-one with an older adult to answer basic questions about their phones, laptops, and tablets.

Why we do it.

According to the Pew Research Center, 82% of older adults indicate needing some level of assistance using a new device (ie laptop, tablets, phones).

We believe in a world where no one is overwhelmed by technology. No one should feel like technology is smarter than them, or that becoming proficient with technology is out of reach.

If you believe technology has the power to dramatically change the lives of older generations, join us.

See how you can help.

October 2017

I was given an iPad for my 90th birthday. When that moment came I knew nothing, so I turned to a millennial for help. I now possess skills that allow me to do things I never could have imagined were possible.

I encourage any person to break down the barriers that hold us back from learning the opportunities new technology can have for us, and to take advantage of this workshop”
