This opportunity is for anyone who wants to get out and meet new people, help their community, complete volunteer service requirements, or even brush up their computer skills! We are in search of volunteers to support adults as they build their beginning and intermediate computer literacy. We need friendly and patient volunteers who will help our learners to build confidence as they learn how to operate a Chromebook and to use popular Google Apps (Gmail / Docs / Chrome etc). Our classes are welcoming, friendly and supportive and take learners from turning on a Chromebook, to creating documents and working with popular Google Apps.

"I never thought I would be able to learn how to use a computer far less help other people. This has made me feel really good about myself and gives me a lot of hope." (Former student, now volunteer)

We offer classes in the mornings, afternoons and evenings throughout the week, so we have opportunities to suit everyone's schedule. Come join our Adult Literacy family, we can't wait to hear from you!
