In December 2012, Satellite Housing and Affordable Housing Associates merged to create SAHA, an organization dedicated to providing quality, service-enriched affordable housing to East Bay residents.


Do you want to help low-income seniors overcome technological barriers? Volunteer to assist with basic technology class for seniors living in Oakland! We are looking for a volunteer to assist for 2 hours 1x/week or every other week. Many of SAHA’s seniors living in affordable housing want to learn how to use their technology and have very little knowledge of how to operate and navigate a computer, a tablet and/or a smart phone. They have a strong desire and need to learn. Help these seniors operate their technology so that they can communicate with family and friends!

You would be teaching them the basics of how to know if they are signed into WiFi, how to send text messages, how to create an email account and how to send emails. They also want to know how to surf the Web and use apps on their tablets. If you're looking to make a difference in your community, this is a wonderful opportunity to gain teaching experience with students who are eager to learn.

Requirements: Ongoing SAHA Community Volunteers must commit to volunteer once a week for a minimum of 4 months, and must complete a volunteer orientation, volunteer forms and background screening prior to beginning their placement.

About SAHA: Satellite Affordable Housing Associates is committed to providing quality, service-enriched, affordable housing in the bay area.
