ORGANIZATION: AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP in New York City/CSSNY

Want to make a difference?

Are you a skilled user of computers and other technology? Are you quick to pick up new skills and learn to use new-fangled devices without much effort? Do you fancy yourself somewhat of an expert when friends and family members are having a problem? Perhaps you used to work in technology or are a bit of a hobbyist? Whatever the case may be, your skills and experiences may be just what the doctor ordered!

Or perhaps you are not exactly a "guru," but after attending regular remote exercise classes and/or several trainings or educational lectures you feel well-versed enough in videoconferencing platforms like Zoom and/or webinar platforms like GoToWebinar to provide tech support to individuals attending trainings or other meetings through an AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP partner organization.

Whichever way you contribute, your efforts may be the difference between someone successfully learning to use a new piece of technology or not and/or an organization successfully hosting an online training or not. Inquire further today!


Guess what?! There are even more great opportunities for volunteers 55 and older in all 5 boroughs!

AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP in New York City works with over 250 partner organizations. If this opportunity is not for you, we can help you find another that is. Inquire about our active opportunities today and/or ask to be added to our contact list for after things settle down!
