Do you have a passion for teaching seniors about technology? Then look no further than our Digital Inclusion Volunteer Program where we teach seniors how to use all types of technology! Volunteers are needed to assist the lead teacher and to help answer student questions during the class.
Volunteer Duties: Volunteers are needed to assist with the following tasks: includes event set-up/break-down, keeping attendance, helping students understand what they are learning in the classroom, moving classroom materials from one location to another, and taking photos at the event.
* Other duties if needed and if the volunteer desires may include: Training to become a lead teacher and curriculum creation.
Special Information: These classes are mostly held between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm during the week as this is when the target population is more available. Volunteers would need to be free during the morning or afternoon during the week. More information on a possible schedule can be provided. Please wear sturdy closed toed shoes and appropriate, comfortable clothing (ex. jeans, shirt and tennis shoes). Business Casual is preferred. You must provide your own transportation to each location where our classes are being held. You may be asked to go to multiple locations in a single day.
