Volunteer as a Technology Tutor for Mandarin and Cantonese Speaking Seniors at Valdez Plaza

Save to Favorites

Satellite Affordable Housing Associates

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 Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking seniors overcome technological barriers? Volunteer to tutor technology for seniors living at Valdez Plaza! We are looking for a volunteer to assist for 1-2 hours on a weekday morning or afternoon. 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.
