The St. Paul Public Housing Agency (PHA) is seeking volunteers to help families at our Mt. Airy Homes Computer Lab located in the Community Center at 91 Arch Street in St. Paul and the McDonough Homes Computer Lab located in the Community Center. Both communities are culturally rich and diverse in ages.
Many of our residents cannot afford or do not have access to the Internet in their homes. The Computer Lab offers both Internet access and software programs to write letters, practice keyboarding or learn operating systems.
Volunteers will assist with basic and possibly advanced needs, such as unjamming a printer; navigate the internet; use of software programs; how to fill out a job application; teach someone how to use a mouse; how to use search engines and learn word processing/use a keyboard.
Willingness and interest in working with non-English speaking residents is valued. Individuals who successfully pass a criminal history background check will be required to sign a volunteer agreement and go through a brief orientation session. There is a possibility of a small stipend.
Flexible schedule and no minimum hours are required. Being bi-lingual is an asset but not required. Please read through the description thoroughly. If interested, please contact: Diane Anastos, Resident Initiatives Program Coordinator, at 651-298-4929 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Must be 16 years and older to apply.
