Technology Assistants help library patrons develop the necessary skills to look for jobs and utilize technology in their daily lives.
Volunteers need good communication skills and patience. To succeed in this position, one does not need to be a computer expert. This is a great volunteer position for individuals looking to help senior citizens, recent immigrants, and out-of-work adults in the Rondo community.
