Digital communication is essential nowadays! Now we need to log in for many interactions that used to happen in person, such as a doctor's visit or a class at the senior center. Help an older adult learn to use an internet-enabled device. Our volunteers may install internet, deliver a tablet, and assist with set up and how-to on applications, including email or video-conferencing software. SCES Technology Coach volunteers follow COVID-19 protocol during an initial home visit; after that, additional help is over the phone.

Especially seeking a Spanish speaking volunteer!
