Do you like using technology?

Do you enjoy sharing your tech know-how with others?

Might you occasionally have time to share what you know and make a big difference in people’s lives?

Ashby Village would love for you to join us to support our community of older adult members.

Here are ways you can help:

  • Provide one-on-one tech assistance virtually and in-person with computers, smartphones, tablets, and printers, including installation and setup, internet navigation, software tips, security tips, and general troubleshooting
  • Facilitate tech support groups (iOS/Android, Mac/Windows, etc.)
  • Support and plan workshops and events for our members and volunteers
  • Assist Ashby Village operations with tech needs
  • Collaborate with other technology volunteers to explore solutions to new or growing challenges

Even if you consider yourself a basic technology user, your skills are valuable!

What are the benefits to you of volunteering?

  • Feeling deeply appreciated from those you help
  • Sharing in the joy our villagers experience when they learn something new or solve a problem
  • Meeting and learning from other great volunteers with a wide range of skills and backgrounds
  • The opportunity to strengthen and broaden your skills by teaching others
  • Getting to know the wonderful people in our community!
