Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) opened its first Senior Planet Exploration Center in New York City in 2013. The center is the first of its kind in the nation, offering a comfortable and engaging place where adults 60-plus can learn, work and explore new ways to thrive in today’s digital world.

Senior Planet North Country builds on this platform of services and is tailored to the unique needs of older adults living in the North Country. The center hosts 5- and 10-week digital technology courses geared to people 60-plus, along with workshops, talks, and social events. All of Senior Planet’s courses and events are free.
