Access To Technology Program For Seniors
Stanislaus County logo

The Gladys L. Lemmons Senior Center is partnering with the Stanislaus County Adult, Child, and Family Services Division to offer an Access to Technology opportunity for local senior citizens. Participants will be given an iPad to learn how to use its programs and features during a 16-week class. If the senior attends at least 75 percent of the classes, they can keep the iPad.

They will also receive free internet for the rest of this year.

Not all who apply will be chosen.

Those interested are asked to pick up an application and an information sheet at the Senior Center, 450 E. A St, Oakdale.

Through the pandemic, the senior population was more isolated due to high risk factors from contracting COVID. This program will give seniors who do not have access to technology, the ability to stay connected with their loved ones. Priority will be given to those who do not own a tablet or have home internet; though all applications will be considered.

The first class will begin in early April and the second class will begin in early August; they are both 16 weeks in length.

The requirements are as follows: Must be at least 60 years old; must live in the 95361 zip code.
