2015/Q3 Newletter
Notes From Kelly's Desk:
Hello friends of T4T! I am so excited to have the opportunity to serve a nonprofit that encourages positive community engagement.
Each quarter, I'd like to take a moment to tell you about my experiences with T4T and give you an inside look at what's happening behind the scenes.
Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself. When I'm not in the office, I'm most likely chasing my 3 year old son around the yard or participating in community events. I'm an import from New York, though I've lived in Vermont on and off through the years. In addition to being a dynamic young professional and a doting mother of one, I am also a full-time student. 
In the coming months with T4T, my initial focus will be on expanding our chapter base and curriculum offerings. Technology For Tomorrow has grown exponentially since its founding and with great success in Chittenden County, we will be taking our mission to schools and organizations statewide. 

WCAX recently featured Technology For Tomorrow on the evening news. You can see the spot by following this link: WCAX Video

Take part in a unique opportunity for intergenerational discussion, education and activity. Technology For Tomorrow welcomes community members to join us for a morning of modified Zumba, tai chi and interesting discussion of the impact of technology in our daily lives. There with be an opportunity for questions, and connections along with light refreshments.

T4T has recently formalized a partnership agreement with AARP, the largest interest and advocacy group in the US for those 50 and older. The partnership gives T4T access to AARP's instructional resources for seniors, and expands the communication channels for promoting T4T's mission and events across Vermont to AARP's membership and beyond. T4T will also be working with the AARP national office to provide feedback on their curriculum and help shape its evolution, while also gaining insight into AARP's next generations of technology instruction. Watch for more news and exciting results as this partnership takes off!

Techboomers aims to improve the quality of life for older adults and other inexperienced technology users by empowering them to learn how to use popular and trusted websites and Internet-based applications. Through our partnership with TechBoomers, T4T can expand its instructional resources across a broad range of tech topics. TechBoomers tutorials are the basis for many of T4T's curriculum presentations.

Burlington School District and Technology For Tomorrow have teamed up to create computer literacy courses for Parent University, a program to enrich, empower and engage new American families with students in the Burlington After School Program. These courses assist families in achieving a higher level of parental involvement in their child's education, as well as facilitating opportunities for parents to develop new skills. T4T will host computer literacy courses during the fall 2015 semester.

Vermont Adult Learning provides adults with essential skills education to further their educational, employment and personal goals in order to expand their options and capabilities in the family, community and workplace.  Technology For Tomorrow will work with students of VAL to teach introductory computer courses, increasing opportunities to develop skills needed in the workforce. 

Recap: Summer Highlights
Summer Workshop Series, 2015

Our first summer workshop series was a great success! In July and August, student volunteers served a total of 142 senior participants, with 86 of those attending a T4T workshop for the first time. We also had a total of 70 student instructors who donated volunteer hours at a total value of $517.50. Workshops were hosted in two locations: the Winooski Senior Center and the South Burlington Community Library. Thank you to our two venues, as well as volunteers from our South Burlington chapter and UVM's Upward Bound program.
