Tech Teens

Community Service Hours!

As Tech Teens we will meet and connect with residents while helping out with various tech needs! We begin to roll our eyes at the adults in our lives at about age 10 with their inefficiency with technology.  But we must remember it is a generational thing! There is nothing more frustrating than not being able to figure out how to download a book on your Kindle or how to look at that photo of your adorable grandchild sent over e-mail.

When: October 22nd @ 1pm-3pm
Where: Meridian Boulder – Brookdale Senior Living
Consistency: Weekend (Sunday)
Eligibility: Open to all 7th-12th graders

For questions please contact Program Director, Shayna Hamburg
