Here are just a few of the comments some of the people involved are saying about us:
Dr. Tracy Mitzner -- Senior Research Scientist at the Georgia Tech Human Factors and Aging Lab
"I want to commend you on your accomplishments! I am impressed with your...ideas and goals. There is such a great need for the services your nonprofit organization is offering."
Rohan Bagga -- Technocademy Volunteer Coordinator
"Technocademy is an amazing way to get high school students involved in making a difference in the lives of senior citizens. It is a pleasure to work with the committed and compassionate volunteers and I hope we can continue to impact others for many years."
Seniors and Veterans
Carolyn S. -- independent senior
"They are so patient and understanding. Wanted to give them the thanks and credit they deserve for being so helpful with their elders. I am proud to see such strong, kind teenagers among us."
Warren S. -- independent senior and veteran
"I wanted to comment on the very valuable lessons that Josh Seides, the founder of Technocademy, gave me in learning to use my iPad. He is kind, patient, and understanding of those older people like me who never had the opportunity to learn about modern technologies in school. I have very much enjoyed listening to a large variety of music, using my iPad, doing my email and my finances both at home and on vacations. Thank you, Josh, for helping to make my life experiences broader and happier."
Diana F. -- independent senior
"I have been helped by Technocademy/Josh and think this is a wonderful service for seniors. Amazing, patient young students are to be commended for their service to help others stay connected to family and friends in today's world of technology."
Soheila B. -- resident at Sunrise Johns Creek
"They were mature, helpful, and cooperative volunteers. I think they are the coolest bunch of people that want to teach the elderly how to keep up-to-date with the 21st century."
Jane S. -- independent senior
"Their help was great. They answered so many questions and gave helpful hints with patience, understanding, and kindness. They listened to what we wanted to know, and then led us on a process of discovery for the answers. They gave just enough information without having the learning become overwhelming. We learned so much. Bravo to Technocademy!"
"Outstanding to both [helpfulness and knowledge of volunteers]. They are very knowledgeable about their topics but they can bring the information down to the students' level to enhance understanding. We are so happy to have found them."
"It's a wonderful resource for anyone interested in broadening his/her learning in the tech field. We highly recommend Technocademy."
Carl L. -- resident at Sunrise Johns Creek and veteran
"What a great program for assisted living generations. I am 94 years old but still sharp! [Technocademy] was very helpful and students are able to answer my questions."
Betty B. -- resident at Ivy Hall Alpharetta
"You gave us plenty of attention and showed us many things. For what I know, you were great. Very pleased with attitude and knowledge [of volunteers]."

Nicole Little -- Activities Director at Benton House Johns Creek
"Very helpful! The Technocademy, Inc. generated a lot of excitement from our residents. We all need help with technology! My residents were able to follow instructions easily. The volunteers made the electronics less intimidating. The Technocademy, Inc. volunteers were very gentle in their approach and patient in their teaching to our seniors. Very happy to have them!"
"Technocademy, Inc. is a great organization not only for senior citizens but also for the volunteers because it feels so great to know that I have helped someone learn something new."
"I thought it really involved leading other people which helped developed my relationship skills with senior citizens. It was so heartwarming and inspiring to learn about seniors from being able to teach them."
Girl Scout Troop 3020
"Recently, I had the opportunity to go to a senior living community with my Girl Scout Troop in order to help them with their technological problems and I am so glad that I got to have this wonderful experience. While there, I got to meet so many different people and it was rewarding helping them solve their problems. I even helped one lady fix her DVD player and she was satisfied with the work my partner and I had done. They enjoyed us so much that the seniors were looking forward to having my troop come back soon. I am looking forward to it as well and give credit to Technocademy for letting us volunteer with them."
