"TTT has allowed me to share my passion for learning about technology with many others across the nation. Being a part of TTT and helping other people connect to the online world has been a very rewarding experience since technology is a growing part of our daily lives. I always look forward to team meetings and seeing the growth of TTT."

"I think TTT is a great organization that really strives to help our society and helps connect people through technology. As a member of this organization, I am able to make an impact on society and really fulfill my desire to help others and share my knowledge to benefit our elderly population. I am grateful that I joined this group and I hope I can continue to influence our community through this group's great works and efforts."

"Teens Teach Technology is a different volunteer experience than most students - including myself- are used to, as the work you do is mainly independent, which provides a lot of learning opportunities. During my time in the public relations, presenters, and social media sections of TTT, Iʻve strengthened my skills in professional communication and public speaking, and have stretched out of my comfort zone while building these new skills. TTT is also a great way to volunteer in our current situation, as we are so reliant on technology, which not everyone knows how to use! What is really great about this organization is that volunteering with it not only benefits you today and your future, but also a community of seniors that will gain so much from the work that you do."
