About

Join us and become a Senior LinkAge Line Volunteer in 2017.

Do you have both computer and Internet skills? Can you volunteer to teach those skills to senior citizens in Northeastern Minnesota?

Do you have access to a Computer Lab where Medicare consumers can meet and participate in this two-hour class?

We are in need of an instructor for our Senior Surf Day classes. Senior Surf Day is a two-hour long class for seniors who want to learn the basics of the computer, the Internet, and how to search for information online. We also cover the subjects of fraud awareness and how to find and use www.medicare.gov. This class helps Medicare consumers use web browsers.

The classes take place in a Computer Lab setting. Each class session runs approximately two hours. The volunteer instructor uses a course outline we provide to review basic functions of the computer, visit various Internet sites, and help students become familiar with computer terminology. This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers who want to help others learn the Internet and who are interested in a set schedule and a known time commitment.

If you have questions please contact me, Lee Swenson, Volunteer Coordinator with the Senior LinkAge Line at 1-800-333-2433, Ext. 81019.
