The Black Hills State University Enactus students, in partnership with the South Dakota Center for Enterprise Opportunity (SD CEO) Women&rsquos Business Center at BHSU, will host Get Connected: Facebook for Retirees Thursday March 19 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in Jonas Hall, Room 205 on the BHSU campus.  

Get Connected: Facebook for Retirees is a workshop to help retirees become more comfortable with the basics of Facebook.

To optimize their learning experience, participants should bring any log-in information for both current Facebook accounts AND email accounts.  

This is the fourth year Enactus students have staged the workshop with the SD CEO. According to Enactus President Becca Ellis, BHSU Enactus students benefit from this workshop as much as workshop participants.

"This workshop gives students valuable experience teaching and working with a different generation, and we can take that experience with us into our professional lives," Ellis said.

Enactus Vice President for Recruitment Katrina Schrader agrees: "Get Connected: Facebook for Retirees is truly an eye-opening event for our members. Providing the basics about social media skills to retirees is a necessity for the older community and a highly rewarding program all around."

Enactus is an international organization that mobilizes university students around the world to make a difference in their communities while developing skills to become socially responsible business leaders.

The SD CEO is a part of a network of more than 110 centers nationwide established through the Small Business Association.
