Help teach others basic computer literacy!

About

Join the Digital Literacy program as we teach Job Seekers and other adults the basics of computer use.

Literacy Volunteers will provide you with the curriculum and training for one on one tutoring, small group classes, or drop-in computer help clinics to ensure that students learn the skills they need to apply for jobs, communicate, avoid scams, and bridge the digital divide.

Our most popular digital literacy curriculum spans a 6-8 week class held at various times in area libraries. More dates added as soon as we get new volunteers.

Not comfortable in a class setting? Perhaps you would prefer to sign up as a one-to-one tutor, meeting your student in a quiet library or community center and helping a student learn to pay bills, apply for a job, or achieve other individual computer-based goals.

If variety is more your thing, we will be setting up at locations around the county with regular drop-in clinics where individuals can drop by with questions about their devices or specific computer-related questions to tap into your expertise.

You don't need to be a computer genius to help others learn - just a solid knowledge of e-mail, web searching, and internet basics. That said, we're also happy to have Microsoft Word, Excel, and Publisher enthusiasts, as well as perhaps expand our offerings into coding and teaching database building and use.

Whatever your special skills, we'd love to have your help!
