Low-stress computer classes cater to older adults

If you are an older adult looking for a place to learn how to use computers in a fun and stress-free learning environment, sign up today for the City of Seattle’s Seniors Training Seniors computer classes. Registration is now open for classes from February through April 2014.

Sponsored by the Mayor’s Office for Senior Citizens, part of the Seattle Human Services Department, Seniors Training Seniors offers classes such as “Introduction to Computer Basics,” in which students learn basic skills such as beginning word processing, Internet skills, and e-mailing. For those already familiar with the basics, there is a “Beyond the Basics” class, which teaches more advanced skills.

Current Seniors Training Seniors sites are located in southeast Seattle; Greenwood, Lake City, Belltown, Wallingford, and downtown. To register or hear more information about class dates, please contact Patti-lyn Bell, Mayor’s Office for Senior Citizens, at 206-684-0639 or

Seniors Training Seniors computer classes for adults age 50 and above are taught by fellow seniors. Class fees are modest.
