NEW YORK — While visiting his grandmother in Florida last winter break, Connor Tukel helped set up her new iPhone.
“Then it hit me that it was so easy for me,” said Tukel, a 12th-grader at the Frankel Jewish Academy in West Bloomfield, Mich. “It seemed obvious that kids of my generation could help other seniors as well. And why not improve the lives of those around us?”
He contacted the principal and head of technology at his school, as well as the director of a nearby senior residence. After recruiting 10 other students, Tukel called the group Teens Teaching Technology.
