CommYOUnity Tech Talk Recap

On Saturday, May 7th 75 community members came to F.H.T. Middle School, South Burlington to attend the Tech Talk. Volunteers from AARP Vermont's Fraud Watch Network , Small Dog Electronics and Technology for Tomorrow led presentations covering Internet Safety and Fraud Watch, Intro to iPhone/iPad, and Intro to Facebook, respectively.  

One attendee said of the event, "It was really great...The fraud workshop was very important for me and I really needed to know what I learned [at the workshop]. It has already changed my behavior."

In fact, feedback was so positive T4T will be partnering with Small Dog Electronics and AARP Vermont again for another event in October! Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more information about signing up!

Rutland, Vermont
Big Picture Moment
Each quarter we take a moment to look at and learn from major news going on around us.

Last month, the Rutland Mayor, Christopher Louras, announced that 100 Syrian refugees would be resettled in Rutland, Vermont starting in October. The city is well suited for these refugees as it has jobs and housing waiting to be filled, with a school district eager to help. While the announcement was met with some pushback, it was well received by the majority of Rutland, a city already composed of many immigrants.
Amila Merdzanovic, director of the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, stated, "85 percent of employable adults are self-sufficient within eight months of resettling." T4T is determined to make this transition smoother by connecting refugees and new Americans to free technology education.  With our free technology workshops, we will provide the basic computer and social media skills expected both in day-to-day life and in the workforce. Furthermore, with the growing capabilities of the Internet, we aim to provide a way for refugees to feel connected with their own culture, family and friends while adjusting to living in Vermont.
