Using computers, tablets or smartphones and accessing the internet is now vital to carrying out our day-to-day lives. Want to apply for a new job? Go online. Need to check your kid's homework assignment? Go online. Need medical advice or information on a drug you have been prescribed? Go online. Banking, classes, looking for housing--you get the idea.

If you are comfortable using computers, you can help your neighbors that are still on the other side of the "digital divide." Join our team as we teach fundamental computer skills and how to access the wealth of opportunities and resources online.

Classes are one hour each, once weekly, for ten week sessions. All classes are currently virtual and we need in-class support (zoom) on Monday evenings (6-7 PM) and Friday afternoons (2-3 PM). If you need to work to your own schedule, we have opportunities to support learners one:one. You can start at any point during the class cycle and bilingual (Spanish/English) volunteers are highly desirable.
