Faces of Boulder: Technology Bridges
Technology Bridges is a local non-profit created by Anthony Levy, Joshua Chen, and Lee Shainis that bridges the gap between generations, giving people the chance to learn from each other and gain new perspectives through this connection. Technology Bridge’s mission is to give everyone the opportunity to learn technological skills in order to better their daily lives. T Bridges creates valuable volunteer opportunities for high school and college aged students by providing them the chance to give back to their communities while gaining valuable teaching experience. This is done through one on one mentor relationships where students teach elders about technology and elders share their life stories with students. Technology Bridges has trained over 46 volunteers who have impacted the lives of over 60 elders. Technology Bridges is always looking for new volunteers so get involved by going to their website.
This week Elevations Credit Union hosted an event at the Dark Horse called Project Awesome where T Bridges was nominated as a finalist. Project Awesome is a competition that Elevations Credit Union put on for CU Buffs that are doing something awesome to help their communities. The Dark Horse gave away free food, beer, and games of pool for anyone that came by to support Project Awesome. Technology Bridges got 2nd place and won $1000 towards their social business and can continue to help out elders in our community.
