What is Cyber Seniors?
Cyber Seniors is a FREE computer based literacy program led by student mentors from the Niskayuna High School. We match each patient with their very own mentor that has been trained in the Cyber Seniors curriculum. Based on what the patient prefers, students design a tailored program to meet each one of our patient’s needs.

The program is designed to be taught over the course of 6 weeks, with training ranging from basic computer use, to exploring social media. Patients are provided Google Chromebooks by the Niskayuna High School Library to practice and learn their computer skills. If you prefer to learn from your own device (laptop, phone, or tablet) feel free to bring that along!
Please note, program curriculum is subject to change based on patient preference. Patients are not restricted to the lessons below, if they have specific questions, mentors can create a customized curriculum based on their interests:
Lesson 1: Introduction to Computers
Lesson 2: The Keyboard
Lesson 3: Sending & Receiving Email
Lesson 4: Internet Browsing/ Search
Lesson 5: Social Media & Internet Terminology
Lesson 6: Patient Choice!
Classes meet Fridays, 4 P.M to 5 P.M, at the Niskayuna High School Library, 1626 Balltown Road, Niskayuna, NY, 12309.
Even though the program is designed for patients to attend all classes, it is not mandatory to do so. Patients can feel free to attend as many classes as they like in order to satisfy their technology skills, questions, and competency goals.
Admission to Cyber Seniors is on a rolling basis.
