Teens Teach Senior Citizens and a Freebie for You!

Greetings Friends! I always get excited when I read about good works done by teens. (And there are plenty!) This morning, I read about teens in Kansas City who are being trained with a grant from Google Fiber to teach senior citizens how to use the Internet on computers. This project matches teens with seniors for technology lessons. There is a rigorous 60-hour training for the teens before they can do the teaching. They receive a stipend for their work.

I love this idea! What a brilliant way to harness the expertise of our teenagers to benefit our senior citizens. If you’d like to read about it, the full article is here.

FREEBIE: The third book in the Ocean Mist series is FREE today! Grab your copy here. TheReturn 500x750

Blurb: Following her mother’s death, Tiffany’s missing father reappears intending to take control of both her and her brother. Tough and rebellious, Tiffany doesn’t take kindly to meddling jerks and insists that neither she nor her little brother needs help, especially from the likes of him.

Tiffany plots her escape, but her plans become tangled when Jason, a new student whose past is shrouded in rumors, moves to Ocean Mist. Despite her intention to remain aloof, Tiffany falls for him and is driven to discover his secret.

When Tiffany’s brother sides with their father, Tiffany decides to run. But where can she go? Can she desert both her brother and Jason?

 

Feel free to share news with us about what the teens are doing in your community. (I love hearing from you!) Also, I’d love to hear your thoughts on The Return.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Please share this blog post with your friends! I’d love them to grab a free copy of The Return, too!

  1. I love the idea of teens helping seniors with computer skills.
    And the book sounds great!

  2. That’s such a terrific way for teens to volunteer, and it will benefit them,too, in more ways than they probably know. Thanks for the free book!
