About

Are you a tech-savvy individual looking to spend time with low-income seniors to make a direct impact?

Duties:

  • Commit to a weekly tutoring shift
  • Help residents learn how to navigate and use the resources available to them in our computer lab
  • Act as a resource and guide, helping them learn how to find resources and information
