Digital literacy education is essential for everyone, including seniors to sustain their quality of life. The Digital Academy for Seniors aims to instill digital skills among seniors through a non-formal learning program. This qualitative research aimed to provide a comprehensive description of how the program can develop digital resilience and improve the quality of life of seniors. This study concluded that the program can improve the knowledge and attitudes of seniors in using digital media safely. Both of these are important assets for seniors to develop their digital resilience so that they can take advantage of digital media to support their higher quality social lives. These new findings are significant because they differ from previous research that focused on the limitations of seniors in using digital media. The program has demonstrated that anyone can learn digital literacy and benefit from it, regardless of perceived limitations.
