Looking for student volunteers to work with senior citizens



Dear Students,

 

Dr. Steven Lindo has been running a 6-week entrepreneur bootcamp for senior citizens (AARP members) at Springboard Incubators in Hempstead.  One additional service he would like to offer these seniors is to work with students to design a simple one-page website for them.  It would a win-win for students and these senior folk:  You students get to add to your resume that you worked to design a website for these members, and the senior folk benefit from understanding what it takes to build a website.

 

If they (AARP members) choose to go further, some may decide to stipend the student to implement but that is totally up to the AARP member and the student.  Dr. Lindo would prefer it be provided "pro-bono". 

 

It is scheduled for Saturday, Dec 14, 2019 at 12:00pm - 1:30pm, and he is looking for as many students as possible to attend and sit with the seniors (he will provide pizza and drinks for the students). 

 

Please email Dr. Steven Lindo steven@springboardincubators.org so he has a head-count of how many are willing to volunteer.
