Wire the Wise (WTW) provides monthly intergenerational meetups at different senior centers around Manhattan, NY. These meetups focus on bringing two generations together that both have wisdom to share and learn. Senior adults, the Wise, can share their knowledge with young professionals, the Wired, while also learning how to use modern technology. WTW offers a unique opportunity for the Wired to learn from the Wise by providing a third of the meetup for social interaction and breakfast.Following breakfast, 1-on-1 tech learning begins which allows the Wise to learn technology from the Wired in a comfortable environment with effective results.
The program started in March 2015 with a pilot program at the 92nd Street Y. It continues to grow in Manhattan, opening at another location every few months.
