The STAR Center (which stands for Special Technology Access Resource) is a free, public computer lab located in south central Seattle. We are passionate about digital equity and making computers and the Internet accessible to all regardless of income, disability, and education level. We offer training and assistance in basic computer functions and in several accessibility softwares for computer users who are low vision, blind, or have limited mobility.
We are looking for more volunteer lab supervisors to join our team. These volunteers sit at the front desk greeting visitors, registering new lab users, and answering questions. Hours are flexible, although we are currently in need of volunteers to fill any 2hr minimum shifts between 1pm - 5pm on Tuesdays and 5pm - 7pm on Wednesday - Friday. We look for volunteers who are friendly and enthusiastic about helping others, have knowledge of basic computer programs, and who are comfortable interacting with all kinds of people. Experience working with assistive software like ZoomText and JAWS a plus!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
