We offered a computer fundamentals class for the first 20 to register for the class.  The students posted brochures all over the community and school. Participants had to be over 55 years old to qualify for the class.  It was a wonderful success.  The student tutors learned a lot from the in-class students and vice versa. What a way for the students to learn at a young age to give back to their community.It definitely was a win-win situation.
