Adult Learning Center
Meals on Wheels operates the Adult Learning Center (ALC), a full-service technology education center run by experienced volunteers devoted to enhancing the technology skills of older adults. Through small classes with individualized instruction, participants, from the novice to the more seasoned technology user, gain valuable skills, and improve technological communication with their family and friends.
Each class offers one Instructor and two coaches with a maximum of 8 students per class. Highly individualized attention enables students to learn at their own pace. Each student has the use of an individual computer during class.
All courses are offered for free! Courses run from one day to six weeks, depending on the course work. For some courses an optional manual is available at a cost of $15.
All classes are held in a state-of-the-art classroom on the Meals on Wheels campus at 121 West Nyack Road, Nanuet and are offered in morning and afternoon sessions, Monday through Friday.
The ALC also hosts a monthly "Open House" where students can get personalized help with any specific topic related to a course they have taken at the ALC. In addition, students may get assistance with any software problems they are having. These services are offered at no cost to past and current students.
