Transcript

Do you have the newest tablet? Can it double as a laptop? Do you have a smartwatch? Are you thinking about getting Google Glass?

Many of us have or are just about to get the latest, fastest and most up-to-date technology to guide us through the day.

But some people have seen the high-tech parade pass them by. And that's becoming more of a problem as technology become less of a luxury and more of a necessity in our society.

There are organizations in San Diego trying to help underserved residents get access to and learn how to use computers and other devices.

Volunteers Needed!

If you're interested in volunteering to train local seniors on computers as a Tech Ambassador
