Message to Our Lifelong Learning Center at SCCC Community,

All of us at the Center miss seeing you at our Center presentations, workshops, and luncheons. It is our sincere hope that our Center community is weathering this pandemic storm with the fortitude and energetic spirit that has been evidenced during the last 5 years the Center has been serving the Greater Sussex County Community.

Many of you participated in our Tech Talks every semester. During these workshops, our seniors were taught technology skills by students and experienced firsthand how their new technology skills could improve their lives. Now, more than ever, technology skills can be used to prevent isolation and connect, while remaining safe.

At this time, Tech Talks for Seniors is going virtual! The Center will be offering the FREE workshop “Optimizing SmartPhone Functions to Connect with Your Community” multiple times on Fridays and Sundays during the Fall 2020 semester. Student volunteers will again teach the classes.
