Hello! :)

We are the Adult Learning Program at Jane Addams Resource Corporation.

The pandemic has created a greater need for people to function virtually rather than IRL, and this has created quite a barrier for adults with low digital literacy skills.

We are seeking a volunteer who can help an adult learner with her computer skills for 90 minutes once a week. She needs help with basic internet skills, like using a video chat.

You will tutor her in the computer lab at our main office in Ravenswood. Every learner and tutor who meets in-person is required to have their temperature checked, fill out a COVID screening and wear a mask every time that they come onsite. The computer lab is disinfected on a daily basis.

The learner is available on Mondays and Tuesdays from 10:30am - 3pm.

All JARC ALPS volunteers are provided with 12 hours of training before they begin with a learner and with curriculum to use with their learner.

Perks of volunteering include opportunities for free professional development through Literacy Works, Chicago Citywide Literacy Coalition and other organizations.

To get started you attend an info session with the program coordinator, Wednesday Quansah. (That's me!) :)

If this opportunity sounds like a good match for you or if you would like more info feel free to call/text me at (312) 620-6689 or email me at wednesdayq@jane-addams.org.

Thanks!
