Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) recently delivered its 10,000th free computer class to senior citizens. Since 2004, Brooklyn-based OATS has been providing training and support services citywide to groups of older New Yorkers eager to learn about and use digital technology, and is now the largest and most successful municipal technology program for seniors in the nation.
The services that OATS provides are supported by the New York City Council and private funders. OATS collaborates with the NYC Department for the Aging to bring digital technology to life for New Yorkers who frequent senior centers throughout the city, and is working with the agency to implement a federal broadband initiative that will significantly enhance the computer technology, connectivity speeds, and training options available to seniors at two dozen sites throughout the five boroughs.
