Computer Buddies

The Problem

Older people don't know how to use the technology and miss out on opportunities to connect to other people.
For example one guy wanted to get Skype to contact his family in New York but didn't know how to use it.
Young people get the chance to talk to and hear from older people.

The Solution

Young people in Kolbe Catholic College volunteer to go to Murdoch University on week days and older people came into the library with the technology they had problems with and we worked with them and explained how their technology worked.
Things like phones, internet cables, emails, and Facebook.
It happens once a week on a Wednesday afternoon and students get points towards the Kolbe Care program (social justice and community care)
