Next Week: Affordable Home Internet and Cybersecurity Tips

Hi everyone,

Senior Planet at Avenidas is excited to offer two informative programs next week!

📰 Home Internet Access – IN-PERSON

Join us for an in-person class all about Home Internet Access at the Senior Planet center at Avenidas on Wednesday, December 14, at 10:00am – 11:00am PST. Having home internet can help you save money, look for a job, connect with others, make everyday tasks easier, and much more! This lecture goes over basic information you need to know when signing up for home internet service. You’ll also learn about the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a permanent, government program that helps qualifying low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices. In some cases, depending on your internet plan, the ACP discount may help you get home internet for free! Registration is required by clicking here.

🔐 Cybersecurity – VIRTUAL

Please join us for our final Silicon Valley Speaker Series session about Forward Looking Perspectives on Cybersecurity on Friday, December 16, at 9:00am to 10:00am PST. In this online session, our guest speaker Roman Dumiak — Executive-in-Residence for Industry at the DePaul University Innovation Development Laboratory (iD Lab) and Adjunct Faculty at DePaul University — will provide a forward looking view on cybersecurity products and practices.

We'll see you at the center, and online. Have a great week!
