Senior Planet @Avenidas

Avenidas and Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) have partnered to launch Senior Planet @Avenidas! Senior Planet is an award-winning, unique program where people 60+ who are interested in technology can connect, learn, and grow.

OATS opened its first Senior Planet Exploration Center in New York City in 2013. The center was the first of its kind in the nation, offering a comfortable and engaging place where adults 60+ can learn, work, and explore new ways to thrive in today’s digital world.

Located in Avenidas’ newly-renovated facility at 450 Bryant Street in downtown Palo Alto, this innovative resource is set to become a critical part of Silicon Valley’s aging, technology, and entrepreneurship scenes.
