CCTV teamed up with Google to offer another successful session of Age Engage on Friday, June 5, 2015 as a part of GoogleServe week. GoogleServe is week of volunteer service that engages employees in a variety of community service activities-- everything from building homes to teaching community members how to use technology. Last year, more than 6,500 Googlers volunteered almost 80,000 hours during GoogleServe.
Age Engage is a collaboration between Google and CCTV in which individuals over 50 learn how to use the Internet. During Age Engage, people over 50 are paired with Google employees for one-to-one technology training. The training, tailored to each participant's interests and experience, is very popular. During Friday's session, 13 Google employees worked with 13 older adults. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Participants got help with Facebook, Internet security, Google maps and more.
One participant, Jeanne, explained, "Daniel helped me with internet security and we installed 2 factor authentication on my laptop. Thank you for the experience. I'm very grateful for such knowledgeable help."
On Thursday, June 11 at 6 pm, teens in CCTV's School Year Production Program will host a video screening. The event is free and open to the public. The School Year Production program is an after school media arts and work experience program. Teens in the program learn storytelling, camera, editing, lighting and audio skills, and they are paid to work as media artists, producing a variety of pieces exploring who they are, where they live, and what they believe in.Arts & Entertainment
