“We couldn’t be more thrilled to see our people use computers to enhance their quality of life. We also want to thank the volunteer tutors who give selflessly of their time to teach our tribe members – young and old. What the online world has to offer will be enlightening” said Fawn Sharp, chief of the Quinault Indian Nation.
“I'm grateful for the computer classes taught by Joanie at Emmaus/ SeniorNet (Washington, DC). I learned many computer skills, which were a great source of comfort, allowing me to stay connected with friends and family, to entertain myself with games and music, to skype with my daughter, and to stay informed of world events while I was home recovering. Many thanks to Joe and the staff for all of their support.”

"I have just completed the three session iPad class with Nancy Neschis and wanted to let you know how absolutely terrific Nancy is as a teacher and as a "cheerleader". And beyond the classroom presentation and attention to all questions, her carefully prepared and clear handouts were great for those of us who like written rules. I think we all left feeling less intimidated by the technology and even empowered. I hope to have the opportunity to continue to hone my computer skills, especially with Nancy.
The Senior Net program is terrific . Thank you for making it available at the JCC."
