Twice per month, after school on early-release Mondays, high school student volunteers head to the BI Senior Center (at Waterfront Park) to support senior citizens in learning how to use and get the most from their technology devices.

Silver Tech Squad members work at the Senior Center for about one hour, from 2:15-3:15, and receive 2 hours of community service each time they participate. Students may join once, every now and then, or on a regular basis.

To volunteer as a Silver Tech Squad participant, please fill out this form, stop by BYS or call 206-842-9675.

As a Silver Tech Squad participant, students will be responsible for providing their own transportation to the Senior Center. BYS may be able to connect participants with others heading to the Senior Center so they can go together.

If you have questions, please email Mara at [email protected].
