How does AARP help people use computers and technology?

In today’s world, AARP understands how important it is that older Americans are able to access and confidently use technology to stay connected and informed, and to find the products and services they need without having to leave home.

What do volunteers do to help others with technology?

Tech-savvy volunteers can either teach older adults the basics of using computers and the internet or use their skills to do administrative work or provide technical support.
