Our Services – Atlanta Metro Area
We provide older adults with set-up, support and education for smartphones, tablets, computers and smarthome devices in one-on-one home sessions or in group settings.
All of the services BH Technology Group offers are subsidized, thanks to the generosity of our supporters and delivered by our blended team of professionals and volunteers.
Learning something new can be overwhelming at any age and no one wants to feel left behind. Knowing where to start can be intimidating. We understand that and tailor our services to meet the skill level and learning style of all students. We want older adults to learn in the way that’s best for them.
Education is available in a variety of formats – we’re glad to work with you to determine the best approach.
