People age 50 and better can learn electronic device basics for free from Urbana Park District.

Jacob Johnston, Community Program and Engagement Coordinator, says he and tech-savvy volunteers are ready to help people learn about technology devices.

“I’ll help people learn and/or set up a new smart phone, manage passwords, and how to take, store, and share photos, and more,” Johnston said.

This is a free service, but people need to call Johnston at (217) 367-1544 to set up an appointment. They can also email Johnston at, to set up an appointment.
