Town of Miami Lakes Hosts Graduation Ceremony for New iSenior Program
Miami Lakes, FL - More than 50 senior citizens graduated from the new iSenior Program, thanks to the Department of Elder Affairs Community for a Lifetime Support Projects to Elders Grant in partnership with Hialeah Miami Lakes Adult and Community Education. The grant funded the free intergenerational technology education course for seniors in the community who wanted to learn about the latest tablet technology.
"It makes me proud that the Town has the opportunity to provide our elder community these classes that will allow them to continue to grow and expand their horizons," Mayor Pizzi told the class. "The skills and training the seniors received in this class prepared them for all their future endeavors such as emailing and sending photos to their children and grandchildren. It has become our most popular class."
Hialeah-Miami Lakes Adult and Community Education's Principal Judith Cardona-Delgado and program coordinator Miriam Duman thanked the Town of Miami Lakes and Mayor Pizzi for partnering with the Adult Program to offer these classes to elderly citizens who did not grow up with computers and face difficulties picking up technological skills on their own.
The iSeniorProgram is one of a variety of classes that Miami Lakes and the Hialeah-Miami Lakes Adult and Community Education offers Town residents. The Town is offering seniors the chance to sign-up for the next iSenior by contacting Katya Lysak, Community Services Manager by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (305) 364-6100.
