The (ISC)² Hawaii Chapter Cybergenerations initiative is growing very quickly! We currently have 26 volunteers, and recently signed a partnership with “Kupuna U”, a virtual platform that provides classes to seniors, provided by Meals on Wheels, Lanakila Pacific, and the YMCA. Cybergenerations will be the latest addition to the Kupuna U lineup, providing weekly classes on a weekly basis. Our chapter is also involved in discussions for in-person workshops all over the island. The Cybergenerations program will be ongoing all year, and there is no cut-off date for volunteers! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up as a volunteer!
