Welcome to Access to Technology!  The Access to Technology program provides interactive lessons aimed toward increasing technological literacy for adults 60 years of age and older and adults with disabilities. Through free access to laptops, tablets, and Kindles as well as Wi-Fi connectivity, participants may learn how to navigate: email, social media sites, online library resources, and the internet, among other topics. The ATT program will improve participants’ confidence using the internet and applications while developing a social learner community, in-person and online. Whether participants are interested in developing tech competency for re-entering the workforce or are interested in learning how to connect with family abroad via social media, the ATT program works to understand folks’ existing skills and support their personal progress long term.   What communities do we serve?  This grant addresses people 60 years and older and disabled adults of any age. This includes deafness, blindness, diabetes, PTSD, addiction, developmental or intellectual disabilities, mobility impairments, mental illness, cancer, autism, and epilepsy.
