Free Digital Skills Training for Seniors

Digital skills have never been more critical, especially for seniors. But technology is only useful if you know how to use it.

Gluu is a Canadian non-profit on a mission to help older adults use technology to stay happy, healthy & connected. Gluu offers free digital skills training for all Canadian seniors (born before 1964) thanks to funding from the Government of Canada. In the last nine months, they have supported 20,000 seniors either through training or by answering technology questions via email, text, or telephone. Registration is now open for classes that begin on January 11, 2021.

What does Gluu mean? It’s a word that starts a conversation. Gluu sticks with older adults as they get the digital skills, they need to be happy, healthy & connected. It’s not a fancy acronym. But it’s definitely a whole lot cooler than Seniors Learning to Use Technology Club. 😉
