KOPYR providing Social Media Training for our Seniors

As we all know, the last year has been difficult especially for our senior population. The spread of COVID-19 left many with no way to see their families leaving them feeling isolated, lonely and depressed. With our partners at Pursuit, The Filipino Seniors Club of BC and Canada New Horizon for Seniors we were able to find a way to help that would keep them safe but still allow them to see their loved one. Our dedicated volunteers were able to provide these amazing seniors with several weeks of technology and social media training. The course helped give them the ability to navigate the internet and the confidence to use social media to connect with their loved ones. After they successfully completed the course KOPYR provided each of the participants with a free Apple Ipad.

We hope these new found skills help them never feel alone and give them the happiness of connecting with family and friends.
