Improving the Quality of Life for Veterans through New Technology Training
We strive to improve the quality of life for Veterans through new technology training that allows them to learn new skills in a comfortable and supportive way. It is our goal to help Veterans reintegrate into society, employment and generally feel confident and become adept with new technological systems.
New technology can be intimidating for anyone. And when someone starts to feel left behind or “out of the loop”, it’s that much harder to get back in the loop. Veterans have significant hurdles to climb after their sacrifice in service (e.g. incidence of PTSD, far higher rates of depression and anxiety, feelings of isolation). Veterans Rock aims to increase the feelings of integration into community and society in general as well as self-sufficiency though the main service of introduction and instruction using modern technology.
To date we have a 100% success rate in completing our mission. This is measured by exit interviews, structured and unstructured questionnaires, and completion rate.
We strive to help Veterans understand, operate, and enjoy technology through modern tablets (for example, iPads). This includes mastery of safely navigating the Internet, downloading and using apps, setting up email, video chatting and discovering Veterans’ resources among many other skills.
“All veterans in the class were engaged throughout the classes – a testament to the value of the instructors and their instructive communication. My favorite thing: What hasn’t been met can be obtained by calling instructor directly.”

“Instructor’s assistant (Kyle) was a BIG help as was the flat screen display which clearly showed actions/skills demonstrated on the iPad”

“You showed us all the basics and answered the questions anyone had. You made yourselves available to the class for any needed help. My favorite thing: The class camaraderie of all in class. Sense of humor.”
