Registration is now open for UNC Asheville’s N.C. Center for Creative
Retirement free computer literacy classes for underserved adults ages 50
and over. Funded through a grant from Salomon Smith Barney, the classes
are designed to reach local low income and minority seniors. The beginner
class meets from 1-2:30 p.m.; the advanced beginner class meets from
2:30-4 p.m. Both courses meet Tuesdays, Oct. 1-Nov. 5 on the UNCA campus.
To date, four computer literacy classes have been offered. Classes are
taught by skilled UNCA undergraduates who are trained and supervised by
campus experts. Participants will learn basic computer skills, how to use
e-mail and the Internet. They will also find out how to access free public
computers in the area.
Space is limited. Deadline to apply is Friday, Sept. 13.
