The Youth Empowering Seniors (YES) Program is a partnership between the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office and local high schools which provides area seniors with assistance utilizing modern technologies. Student volunteers are paired with senior citizens and answer questions on how to use various electronic devices (computers, smartphones, tablets, etc.) and communication methods including, text messaging, facetime, and email. This program enables seniors to better utilize the internet for shopping and information gathering and also allows them to remain in contact with their children, grandchildren and other family members.
