Tech help for Seniors, life skills for Youngsters!
Every Tuesday from 14 March, teenagers from Mornington Secondary Collage will gather at Mornington Library. This isn’t to read or check out books though, instead these students’ goal is to help others with their technology questions.
As part of the new Youngsters program launching at Mornington Peninsula Libraries, students are delivering one-on-one tech help to those who need help with their digital devices.
Whether you need help setting up a new phone, using social media, transferring photos or downloading PDFs, our tech-savvy teenagers are here to help!
This intergenerational program will be delivered by Youngster.co, bringing the community together by addressing social issues like youth unemployment and isolation, while offering much-needed technology support for anyone who needs it.
HOW DO I BOOK?
The Youngsters sessions will be held every Tuesday, 1 – 3pm at Mornington Library between 14 March and 4 April, and 2 – 6 June 2023.
Bookings are essential and free. To book a spot, call 5950 1820 or visit: ourlibrary.mornpen.vic.gov.au/events.
