Our Technology Program was launched in 2012 to help the children in our Group Homes - who lag far behind their peers in technology skills - succeed in a world that has been transformed by computer technologies. As a member of our team of Technology Mentors, you’ll help these youngsters become tech-savvy citizens of the digital age by teaching them basic computer skills and introducing them to computer-based technologies. Tasks will include teaching basic searching, guiding selection of Internet sites, and assessing the effectiveness and appropriateness of learning sites used by the children. The technology mentor program strives to cultivate the individual interests of each child by guiding them to use those software applications and Internet sites that will build competency with a set of established core computer skills with the intent of contributing to each child’s sense of self-esteem and confidence using technology.

Guidelines:

  • Must complete volunteer process (application and interview).
  • Training will be provided by Volunteer Manager and/or program coordinators

Qualifications Sought:

  • Interest in technology and knowledge of PC and/or Mac
  • Experience working with children
