The classes are intended for those 60 and over.

“During COVID-19, older adults across the country are participating in online classes more than ever before,” said a VIA press release. “Through partnering Senior Planet’s Low-Density Communities (LDC) program, Providence Volunteers in Action will begin to offer Senior Planet’s proprietary curriculum online this spring.”
