About

Basic computer skills can make a world of difference in the lives of LIHI residents! Join an amazing team of experienced LIHI Volunteers as we partner with LIHI residents to build basic computer skills as they apply for jobs, communicate with family & friends and master skills that will benefit them long after their time with you. As a drop-in tutor, you will be a much needed resource for our senior residents to answer quick questions about computer basics. Through this program, you ensure our residents have access to resources and people to support them on their path to self-sufficiency.

Think you might be a good fit? Our program is still growing and we’d love to hear what you want to get out of this experience! Contact volunteer@LIHI.org or 206-957-8067 for more information and see how you can change someone’s life!

Volunteers should have good working knowledge of Microsoft Word/Open Office, navigating the internet, email programs and general computer skills as well as good verbal and interpersonal communication skills.
