This opportunity is specifically for the Curry Senior Center's Senior Vitality program: "Senior Vitality: enabling clients to better manage their health and well-being through in-home internet access, technology training and health coaching."

We need YOU to tutors seniors in how to use iPads!

As a volunteer with us, you will be providing 1:1 tutoring to Russian-speaking seniors taking classes to learn how to use an iPad. For 2 hours a week, you'll support these seniors as they go through a curriculum focused on learning this technology that, for them, is new and exciting! You'll help them understand what they've learned in class and are struggling with, or help them do a deeper dive into the topics that interest them.

By tutoring a senior in technology you're not just giving them a new skill, you're opening up an entire new world to them!
