Five young women have been assigned to help MHACY residents navigate new computer tablets they received thanks to the ConnectHomeUSA Initiative through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These tutors will help in a variety of ways from assisting children with academic assignments and afterschool activities to helping seniors learn new technologies. Tutors will also help residents learn how to use apps and software that will help prepare them for work experiences and set up tele-med appointments with physicians.
“We are excited that these talented young women will be helping our residents bridge the digital divide,” said Wilson Kimball, MHACY President and CEO. “Now, not only will our young people and our seniors have the tablets to get online, but assistance in learning the techniques they need to use these new tablets in a variety of ways.”
