The mission of Seniors 2.0 is to introduce seniors to technology & tools that will help them function in their everyday lives.
Seniors 2.0 offers fun and interactive technology literacy classes for seniors in Atlanta’s English Avenue and Vine City communities. The program seeks to help seniors stay connected through technology and to have the capacity to use digital resources to live independent lives. Seniors 2.0 offers one on one instruction with technology specialists as well as group classes.
Shon Storey hails from Atlanta’s English Avenue community where her roots run deep. She started Seniors 2.0 in response to the fact that most seniors in her community did not have access to the internet and were thus struggling to stay as connected as they could have been.
