I am working with Families First Inc who has contracted with Columbia 
Residential, developer and owner of Senior and Multi-Family Properties 
throughout the Metro Atlanta area.  Each of our Senior properties have 
business centers on site with 2-3 up to date computers with internet 
access, however they are of little use as the seniors do not know how to 
use the equipment.  Many of the Seniors have expressed interest in 
learning basic computer operations.  


We are looking for students that would be interested in engaging 
students in a project to get Seniors orientated to basic computer 


I would like for students to work with one or two residents at a time 
providing individualize instruction on one of the following areas:


         Basic Operations (Turning the Computer On, Using the Mouse etc.)

         Set up and using E-mail

         Basic Internet Use

         Basic Word Processing


The target population are Seniors with very flexible schedules allowing 
students to determine their available times.  We have a number of Senior 
communities so students can pick a located that is most convenient for 


All of the senior properties are mixed income communities with 60%-90% 
(depending on the property) being low to very low income persons living 
in subsidized units. 


If you are interested, please contact
