The Peoria Area SeniorNet is an all-volunteer organization of seniors, fifty and older. Our goal is to promote computer literacy among seniors. To accomplish our goal we offer classes and seminars on computers, tablets, smart phones, digital cameras, various software products, and other computer-related topics. Classes are offered twice a year, spring and fall.
Most classes meet for 90 minutes weekly for 3 to 6 weeks. Where possible, all classes have a teacher and multiple coaches. The coaches assist the teacher and provide individual attention to students as needed. Additional volunteers are always needed for a variety of tasks. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, please send an email to: PASeniorNet@Yahoo.com. For information about our classes, click Classes. Additional workshops, demonstrations, or seminars will be listed on the Calendar-Events page. Check back periodically for updated information.
We have no facilities of our own. We rely heavily on the generous support of our in-kind sponsors and community organizations that allow us to use their computer labs. We have held classes at many libraries, schools, and churches in the area. Any public place with a computer lab may request our services.
In addition to our in-kind sponsors, The First Baptist Church of Peoria and SeniorNet National, we are sponsored and financially supported by Illinois Eye Center and PNC Bank.
There is no fee to join Peoria Area SeniorNet. However, Peoria Area SeniorNet members must be members of the national SeniorNet organization. The membership fees for 2017 are $44 per year or $72 for couples who register together. Renewing members pay $33 annually.
