As a volunteer, you will be paired one-on-one with an older adult looking for answers about the technology in their life. Common things people ask:
"How do I send a text?"
"How do I attach a document to an email"
"What is Youtube and how do I use it?"
"How do I make a Google Doc?"

We are looking for volunteer Mentors for our Zoomworkshop on SaturdayOctober 1st. We welcome anyone, the only requirement is that you know how to use simple functions on a phone or laptop.

In exchange for answering simple tech questions, you will gain from the wisdom and knowledge of your Mentee. It is a super easy, fun, and rewarding experience - so many new friendships are formed at each workshop.

To learn more about what it's like to volunteer at Generation Exchange, check out photos and videos are on our Instagram at @generation_exchange. Visit generationexchange.org/volunteer to read testimonials from past volunteers.

Become a part of our growing intergenerational community! We'd love to have you :)

Mission Statement

Generation Exchange believes technology should be empowering for everyone.

Description

Free technology help for adults, who sign up as Mentees. Each Mentee is paired with a volunteer Mentor who volunteers to help with issues related to smartphone, tablet, and computer use. Guided by the questions and devices that Mentees bring to the workshop, the pair works together to learn new ways their technology can become exciting and fun. Or at least less frustrating.

After tech help, the roles switch. Mentors now ask their Mentee about anything they need help with e.g. business connections, life advice, restaurant recommendations.

The result is a mutually beneficial experience that leaves you feeling more connected to yourself, your community, and the world.

Generation Exchange has chapters in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins. Since 2018 we have helped over 1000 people in Colorado and around the USA via Zoom.
