Experience Senior Power (ESP) Intergenerational Computer and Job Skills Training Program

1 recipient will receive $298,000. This is a first-time earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Code: N/A
Description: For the development of the ExperienceSeniorPower intergenerational computer learning program, which is designed to close the 'digital gap' between those who have access to computer technology and those who do not. The ExperienceSeniorPower program has already been introduced as an after school program to at-risk youth in order to teach them much needed computer and job skills. But this after school program will come with a twist. Senior citizens will learn computer skills right alongside children. In all settings comes a commitment to bridging the digital divide through uniting the generations. Here, children and seniors will learn computer skills together, insuring "adoptive grandparent" relationships, providing children adult role models few have had opportunity to savor, while providing senior citizens a sense of self-worth.
