We invite YOU to take part in the Cyber-Seniors Corner Campaign – an initiative that partners teenagers and young adults with senior citizens to create fun and unique YouTube videos. In return, you will have the chance to have your video featured in our documentary film, and if you are a high school student we will also award you community service hours.
About the Cyber-Seniors Corner:
Throughout the filming of “Cyber-Seniors”, we have been continually amazed by the creative potential of young people working in partnership with seniors to create inspiring and entertaining YouTube videos. This has led to the creation of a new YouTube Channel called the “Cyber-Seniors Corner”. We are looking for fresh content for this YouTube Channel and the best videos will be featured and credited in “Cyber-Seniors” documentary. For all videos that have been posted go to www.youtube.com/cyberseniorscorner, and subscribe to our channel to get immediate updates !
