In the Fall of 2000, Action for Older Persons (AOP) opened the Edward Zola, Jr. Computer Lab and began offering introductory level computer classes and workshops designed with the learning styles of older adults in mind.
In 2002, the excellence of AOP's Computer Education Program was recognized by The New York State Coalition for the Aging, Inc. by awarding the program a 1st Place Senior Service Achievement Award.
An annual membership to AOP entitles students to a free thirty minute one-on-one tutoring session with tech center staff.
About the Computer Lab:
AOP's computer lab holds five desktop computers running the Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. All systems are networked to the internet via high-speed connection and include numerous software suites for a complete hands-on student experience.
