I was placed at the Cyber Seniors program since 11th grade. What is Cyber Senior? The Cyber Senior program is a project partnered with Palomar Hospital. The project involves seniors with scholars assisting them with today’s technology. The mission of the project is to get seniors beyond the basics of the internet. The program let scholars develop a training manual for seniors that are interested using a computer at a local retirement home, school, and etcetera every twice a week. The original film “Cyber-Seniors,” came from a high school project that was filmed by two sisters, Macaulee Cassaday and Kascha Cassaday in 2009. The Cassaday’s inspiration to make the film is to document what they learned about using the Internet to transform their grandparents’ lives. Many teenage kids in the film saw the huge generation gap between millennials and the generations before. By volunteering, teenagers in the local community help seniors connect their lives with their family members and friends digitally. Recently, the project reached out with Palomar Hospital to spread the power and knowledge of the internet on North County Senior San Diegans.
