About Bridge the Gap

Location:

N/A, Strongsville, OH 44133, US

Mission Statement

In order to bridge the technological gap between generations, high school students around the country work together to teach senior citizens the basics of technology. With a focus on improving mental health, we aim to help senior citizens feel less isolated (especially during the pandemic).

Description

This past year has been difficult for everyone, especially senior citizens. Having grandparents overseas helped us realize how lonely the older generation felt in isolation. Eventually, we came up with an idea that would allow us to connect with local senior citizens and nursing homes to brighten their day. We decided to help seniors learn how to improve their technical skills and become more efficient in online communication. We are a fiscally-sponsored 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
