About Us

My brother and I started TechServeTO in April 2020.

 

Although we were feeling down about the COVID-19 pandemic, we resolved to have a positive impact on people suffering from its implications. We saw our grandparents, whom we live with, struggling with everyday technology usage.  So we thought to ourselves - if they didn't have us living with them, how would they connect with families, friends, and loved ones?  How could they maintain a good level of physical and mental health while observing social distancing measures.  

Then we did our research, and what we found was concerning. According to a recent study, 78% of seniors aged 65-75 owned a smartphone, but only reported “moderate” levels of confidence in using them. 

TechServeTO is our solution - connecting digital-native millennial volunteers with older adults who just need a little bit of technical help to improve their everyday lives. 

 

Our Mission

We want all older adults in Canada to build their digital literacy skills and become confident in using  technology.
