Navigating the digital world can be difficult for our community's eldest citizens, so tech-savy Catholic College Wodonga students are coming to their aid.
The Catholic Identity subject run for year 11 students is based around community work, and each year students visit a couple of locations to perform a range of tasks.
Catholic Identity trainee Daniel Sobolewski, who is helping to run the class this year, said activities were varied.
"There's a few different things they do; they cook at Melrose Primary and help out some of the community members with technology," he said.
"What they do is based on how many people come in looking for help.
"There's a government website called 'Be Connected' that's a teaching website for IT and we get them to sign up."
Rebecca van der Veeke, 16, is looking forward to helping out people in the community.
"Some people have come in only with a box with the iPhone inside," she said.
"That's why the Be Connected website is really good because it takes them through the very basics of what is an iPhone, what is a mouse, and what is the internet."
Rebecca said it was interesting working with different groups of people.
"Sometimes we do cooking or knitting to help at Melrose," she said.
Mr Sobolewski graduated from Catholic College Wodonga last year and is assisting with the Catholic Identity course that he once took part in.
The school brings on former students as trainees for a number of subjects; some have even gone on to study teaching after taking part in the program.
"They send out applications to the whole of year 12 and you submit an application and you might get called in for an interview," Mr Sobolewski said.
"They usually have five trainees or so each year.
"I'm mostly helping with admin and being an extra person.
"I never went to Felltimber Community Centre with my class, I went to another primary school."

Mr Sobolewski said he was enjoying being back at his old school, though being beside the blackboard was something that took getting used to.
"It's a bit weird being in the staff room, and you have to resist the urge to call the teachers 'Mr' or 'Mrs'," he said.
"It's really nice to see people growing through the course."
The students will be at the community centre on Friday to offer IT help.
