Help older adults improve digital literacy

Save to Favorites

InterFaith Works of Central New York

As part of our COVID response and recovery work, InterFaith Works Senior Services Department has started a "Digital Inclusion" Class, designed to help older adults improve their digital literacy and access to technology. We enroll 10 older adults, give them a new tablet and a 3-month internet plan, and provide weekly class plus one-on-one coaching. The class is primarily on-line, though the first two classes will be in-person, in small groups of 5, to orient participants to their devices and teach basic zoom skills. We are looking for a volunteer to help support our 12-week next class, which will run April 12-June 18, 2021 . Duties include:

  • Commitment: 6 hours per week.
  • Attend and support the class. Class will be in-person for the first two weeks, then via zoom
    • Tentative class schedule: Mondays at 12:30-1:30 pm, with additional class times during the first two weeks
  • Work one-on-one with up to 4 participants during weekly coaching sessions
  • Join a weekly planning meeting
