Help Available for Palisades Seniors on Using Tech Devices

Need help getting photos onto Facebook or just learning how to load an app onto your new smartphone? Luckily, Palisades High School students will once again coach seniors on technology devices.

“The program was a great success both times we ran it previously,” said Karen Stigler from Palisades Alliance for Seniors. “To someone who came of age before computer use was widespread, technology can seem unreachably complicated. Yet, increasingly, many potentially useful applications are only available to those in the digital world. We’re excited to be working with PaliHi to bridge that gap.”

Coaching will take place on a smartphone, tablet or laptop at Palisades Charter High School at 4 p.m. in one-hour sessions on Tuesdays, November 28, December 5 and December 12.

“This is such an obvious linkage where both sides can benefit,” said Kia Green, who runs the PaliHi Community Service program.

There is no cost to attend the sessions; however, pre-registration is required. Twenty-five spots will be available for each session, with a wait list if there is overflow interest.

To register online, go to the Palisades Alliance website,, then click on the purple Eventbrite button, and follow the registration directions. To register by phone, call (424) 260-6167
