15 active adults came together on Monday at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC for our pilot JCC Plugged-In pilot workshop. JCC Plugged-In is an intergenerational program that brings the community’s young professionals and active adults together. Volunteers Luy Teitelroit (Founder & CEO / IT SUPPORT GUYS) and Steven Atkin (Distinguished Engineer and Chief Technology Officer, Master Inventor, IBM Support Transformation, Training & Globalization) led the workshop, answering questions and providing participants with hands-on guidance in using their devices and social media.
