Having fun learning about Computers

Nonprofit Selfhelp has a wonderful opportunity for Mandarin speakers who would like to share their interests on varied topics (art, music, history, health, social sciences, computer, & much more!) with Chinese homebound Older Adults. All classes are lead via your computers -and the participants join from their home computer -all virtual! All you need is a regular computer with high speed internet and a webcam. In this program you will see, hear and be able to speak to all the Seniors participating in these interactive classes -all online!

Classes are one hour and there is flexible scheduling (weekday, evening or weekend). If you like interacting with Seniors and have a topic that interests you (or we can discuss) this would be a wonderful opportunity for you to share your interest, interact with interested Older Adults all in the convenience of your home!

Mission Statement

Selfhelp is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to maintaining the independence and dignity of seniors and at-risk populations through a spectrum of housing, home health care, and social services and will lead in applying new methods and technologies to address changing needs of its community. Selfhelp will continue to serve as the "last surviving relative" to its historic constituency, victims of Nazi persecution.

Description

Selfhelp is A private, non-sectarian, not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, Selfhelp was founded in 1936 by a small group of refugees fleeing persecution during the Holocaust. Our history is rich and varied because throughout it, we have continued to respond to anyone in need. Our mission has always been to help older adults live happy, independent lives in their own homes with services that help maintain their health and safety. Today, Selfhelp offers 20,000 aging, frail and "at-risk" New Yorkers a comprehensive network of social service, senior housing and home care services. It is also the oldest and largest provider of Nazi victim services in North America. For almost seven decades, Selfhelp has dedicated itself to being a source of information, service, community, and quality home care for New Yorkers.
