Intergenerational tech help sessions
Bring youngsters back into your library
The Youngster.co program brings young people and seniors together in your library for intergenerational tech help sessions. Youngsters provide personalised tech help for seniors, including how to use their phone, do video calls or connect on social media.
“This is the best tech help program I have ever been involved with. Super super good uptake by the community, never seen anything like it.”Alison, Librarian
Youngsters learn important life skills from the wisdom and experience of seniors. Through tech help sessions both younger and older generations are able to connect. The program also creates jobs for young people, who are able to get paid work experience.
“A great opportunity for youth to pick up paid, rewarding work experience and become more active within the community.”Jenny, Council Manager
