enTECH Computer Club

The enTECH Computer Club (enTECH is a portmanteau of “engage technology”) was co-founded by Dr. Peter M. Hoang and I in Fall 2015, as a student club with the Waterloo Undergraduate Student Union (formally the Federation of Students) at the University of Waterloo. EnTECH was started to support older adults who live away from their families in using technology to keep in contact with them, for improved mental health. As news about enTECH and its work spread in the community, enTECH has been asked to support other populations that may struggle to use technology without guidance, including older adults, cancer patients, and immigrants.
