About

St. Paul Public Housing Agency 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. The Mt. Airy Community is 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: troubleshooting (printer gets jammed); how to locate a site on the Internet; use of software programs or even how to fill out a job application. You might teach someone how to use a mouse, navigate the internet, how to use search engines, search on a website or learn word processing

Willingness and interest in working with non-English speaking residents is valued. A criminal history background check will be required since this is a public housing agency. Individuals who successfully pass a 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. Bi-lingual is an asset but not required. If interested, please contact: Diane Anastos, Resident Initiatives Program Coordinator, at 651-298-4929 or diane.anastos@stpha.org. Must be 16 years and older to apply.
