The students use Generations Online, a software program designed specifically to introduce and engage senior citizens who cannot afford or who do not feel comfortable enrolling in a computer class. The program began in Philadelphia and is now used in more that 1,300 sites in the United States and Canada. The Generations Online Digital Divide Initiative is made possible through the U.S. Department of Labor funding through Senior Service America and is free to agencies and participants.
