This one-on-one session, which was part of MIT's CityDays & Together in Service initiative, paired an MIT volunteer with a senior to help them get the most out of their technological device. A dozen seniors were served by capable and engaged MIT students. The MIT mascot even came to visit!

CityDays is a series of one-day volunteer opportunities for all members of the MIT community. The Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center (PKG Center) coordinates several CityDays throughout the year across the Cambridge and Greater Boston area. In conjunction with MIT's mission, CityDays aims to work for the "betterment of humankind" by connecting those who are a part of the MIT community with local organizations who need volunteers. CityDays MIT2016 is part of the Together in Service initiative.
