Washington D.C. – AARP and Mentor Up, a new way to make a difference from AARP Foundation, is hosting a free screening of the documentary CyberSeniors across the country. CYBER-SENIORS takes a candid and humorous look at the victories and challenges seniors face as they collaborate with teenagers who help them cross the digital divide, enabling them to engage with the world around them via the internet.
In celebration of Grandparents Day, on September 7 the film highlights the impact of older adults and the benefits derived when generations work together. The CyberSeniors film illustrates some of the core components of Mentor Up, to encourage younger generations through volunteerism and community service to help people 50 and over who are struggling to navigate today’s realities.
