SeniorNet provides adults access to and education about computer technology and the Internet to enhance their lives. It is an international non-profit organization designed to teach adults the ways of the computer and the Internet. It is a program for adults, taught by volunteers, in small classes at a speed and language that adults can understand and follow. SeniorNet would not exist without volunteers who dedicate countless hours helping others learn to use computers and the Internet.
Kent SeniorNet is going into its tenth year of serving the community with computer classes. Volunteer instructors teach in an amiable atmosphere. Each course will normally have six students, an instructor and three coaches. Most of the coach volunteers come from the student base and after completing a course with Kent SeniorNet, they enthusiastically volunteer to coach. From coaching they have an opportunity to become an instructor. The volunteers comprise of IBM retirees, retired teachers and other retired corporate personnel.
Our classroom at the Library (see it on the Picture Page in senior drivers) has six computers with Windows/7 and Windows/XP, each of which has MS Office/2003, MS Office/2007. OpenOffice 3, and high-speed internet access.
Kent SeniorNet's Mission is to provide adults access to computer technologies to enhance their lives. Three sessions are scheduled over the year, Spring, Fall and Winter. A course is usually from four to six weeks, meeting once a week.
Our success is attributed to our sponsor, The Kent Public Library, and to the exceptional group of volunteers and students.
