Wallingford Community Senior Center
Enhancing Technology Services
The Wallingford Community Senior Center has provided computer training and access to its members for the past two year. This Technology Matching Fund grant will allow them to improve the services they provide to their clients by upgrading their seven computers, improving the lab space for better teaching, and increasing the numbers of seniors served by expanding programs and hours of operations. This project will also develop a peer mentoring program, where seniors will learn to assist other seniors during open lab time.
