About

How will you use digital technology today? Google search? Directions? Email? Shopping? Contacting a doctor? What would life be like if you couldn’t use a computer? Many older adults in the Bay Area experience isolation and disengagement from vital resources because they have not had an opportunity to learn how to connect through digital technology. You can help these adults connect with family and access information by teaching basic computer skills.

Duties:

  • Commit to a weekly tutoring shift
  • Help a senior learn how to use their laptop, smartphone, tablet or e-reader
  • Act as a resource and guide, helping them learn how to find resources and information

We especially need volunteers who speak languages other than English (especially Spanish, Russian, or Cantonese). For more information and to apply for this volunteer position, please visit our website at http://ctnbayarea.org/volunteer/

Time commitment:

Tutors must commit to one shift per week for at least two months. Shifts are at least two hours, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00-4:00 pm.
