Sensitize the “other public”

But we also do group lessons here personalized support (by arrangement) for all levels. Three themed workshops are offered each day. Each module lasts from 1:30 to 3 hours. Some even fulfill very specific needs: formatting a resume or searching for a job on the Internet.

Therefore, students are not always just seniors. “We’re trying to find another audience to raise awareness, it can interest all types of age groups,” says the coach. DigiTruck will fit up to 20 people. And it is also environmentally friendly because it is powered only by solar energy.
