AARP TEK increases number of mobile technology workshops

AARP said it is expanding its 2015 AARP TEK Program to include eight new cities, 11 locations overall, featuring free, live workshops aimed at helping close the technology gap among people 50-plus.

Presented with the support of AT&T (NYSE: T), these face to face workshops enable people to leverage personal technology to enrich their lives.

AARP TEK (which stands for Technology Education and Knowledge) launched last year. It includes hands-on workshops in select cities as well as the AARP TEK Academy which is a free, easy-to-use online classroom. Both are open to anyone, including but not limited to AARP members, and are designed to allow Americans to connect with people and passions in their lives using technology.

AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, with a membership of nearly 38 million, that helps people turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities, strengthens communities and fights for the issues that matter most to families such as healthcare, employment and income security, retirement planning, affordable utilities and protection from financial abuse.
