Rabb hosts Senior-To-Senior Graduation Ceremony

PHILADELPHIA, April 19 – State Rep. Chris Rabb, D-Phila., today hosted a graduation ceremony for participants in the third iteration of the senior-to-senior program at Hill Freedman World Academy.

During the program, senior citizens learn how to access state government-related resources online via smart phones and computers from local high school seniors. Rabb’s office also recently held a refresher course for participants in the Spring 2022 and Fall 2022 cohorts, where seniors were reunited with their student-teachers.

“It touches me to see the tangible impacts this program has on the lives of the participants; not only do our seniors learn how to navigate technology and see gains in tech literacy, but the interactions between them and the high school seniors bridge generations and foster a sense of intertwined community,” Rabb said. “We have no plans of stopping. I am excited to see what the next cohort has in store.”

Information about sign-ups for the Fall 2023 cohort will be released at a later date.
