Bringing Computer Skills to Adults

Meals on Wheels operates the Adult Learning Center (ALC), a full-service technology education center run by experienced volunteers devoted to enhancing the technology skills of older adults. Through small classes with individualized instruction, participants, from the novice to the more seasoned technology user, gain valuable skills, and improve technological communication with their family and friends. The Adult Learning Center, along with all of our services, is part of a greater continuum of care that enables older adults to remain as independent as possible and living in their own homes.


All classes are held in a state-of-the-art classroom on the Meals on Wheels campus at 121 West Nyack Road, Nanuet and are offered in morning and afternoon sessions, Monday through Friday.

Instruction Information

Each class offers one Instructor and two coaches with a maximum of 8 students per class. Highly individualized attention enables students to learn at their own pace. Each student has the use of an individual computer during class. In classes which do not require the student to use one of the eight desktop computers then more than eight students can attend.

All courses are offered for free! Courses run from one day to six weeks, depending on the course work. For some courses an optional manual is available at a cost of $15.

Classes are offered for the novice to the more advanced student. Whether you need to learn the basics of using a keyboard and mouse or to learn programs that will help you develop more advanced skills, the curriculum includes a variety of class offerings, including Basic Skills, Introduction to Computers using Windows 10, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Photo Editing using Picasa, Genealogy, and iPad and/or iPhone as examples. Curriculum offerings, however, may change as demand warrants.
