Teens Teaching Tech is a workshop series designed to provide older adults with one-on-one support with their modern devices from teens in the community to foster and cultivate intergenerational relationships.

The goal of this program is to help senior citizens feel comfortable with ever-evolving technology.The applicant must be part of a school-based club or homeschool community organization in the United States. The $250.00 grants are provided to high school clubs: community service, National Honors Society, and computer clubs.
