Common support issues include how to effectively use cell phone, tablet and computer functions, using email, texting and word processing efficiently and organizing & managing digital files. The time commitment is one weekday per week from either 10:00am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-3:00pm. Volunteering is done in person at one of our Senior Centers, East 54th or East 70th Street in Manhattan and adheres to all appropriate safety protocols including either proof of vaccination or weekly Covid-19 testing for volunteers.
