Many years ago I started teaching technology for the Seniors through the local community colleges and noticed there weren’t many places older people could go and learn about simple day-to-day tasks on PCs or smartphones. Many suffered from being swindled by people that charged them more than they needed to simply for cleaning their computers up or adding software. Others suffered ID online fraud and were robbed of their funds. For over ten years now I have seen a growing need to help these people in a healthy, one-on-one environment where they could learn and grow using their own choice of technology. Well, now there is…
Here at TES Coffeehouse & Training Center our goal is to reach out and train people 50 and older to handle their basic technology needs independently on their smartphones (Android/ iPhone) or OS of their choice (WINDOWS or APPLE). We will also include Saturday classes for computer literacy and group sessions with no more than 4-5 people to a class. We believe smaller class sized open the door to a better personalized experience and allows us to open training to intermediate level people while keeping the costs low, as little as $15 an hour per tutoring session or class. How do we do this with no grants coming in you ask? This is where our coffeehouse comes in to help our mission goals. With every cup of coffee you buy, you allow us to help train our community, and write resumes all at an affordable price. Our motto is “The Mission is Behind Every Cup” and with your help we can do exactly what we’ve set up our minds on doing, one delicious cup at a time!
