Many individuals in the Bay Area experience isolation or can't access vital resources because they have not had an opportunity to learn how to use digital technology. We need YOU to help these adults connect with family and access information by teaching how to use technology and the internet. We are specifically looking to place volunteers at a computer lab in an affordable housing site in Hunters Point.
Only basic computer skills needed. What is more important is that you are patient, friendly, and interested in helping the community!
What you will do:
- Commit to a weekly tutoring shift
- Help resident learn how to use their laptop, smartphone, tablet or e-reader
- Act as a resource and guide, helping them learn how to find resources and information
For more information and to join our volunteer family, please visit our website at http://ctnbayarea.org/volunteer/
Tutors must commit to one shift per week for at least two months. Shifts are approximately two hours, with availability from Monday through Saturday between the hours of 9:00-5:00 pm. We hope to place someone for a tutoring shift on a Saturday, and another chosen day of the week.
