Digital Literacy Tutor (Volunteer)

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Human-I-T

Quick Overview

The Volunteer Digital Literacy Tutor is responsible for supporting digital literacy learners in gaining basic computer skills. Tutors provide excellent service based on the training they receive as part of their tutoring experience. Supported by the Digital Literacy team, the DL Volunteer Tutor will help facilitate learning and completion of the Basic Skills Computer course. Volunteer Tutors complete a self-paced, online tutor training course and tutor for at least 9 hours per quarter (3 months).

Mission

At Human-I-T, we create equitable access to opportunity by providing devices, internet access, digital skills training, and tech support for communities left on the wrong side of the digital divide-while at the same time, empowering businesses and organizations to do good by diverting technology from landfills to protect our planet.

We believe access to technology is a right, not a privilege. It's what allows people to study remotely, apply for jobs, attend telehealth appointments, connect with distant family, or explore new ideas and perspectives.

In order to shrink this divide, we make it easy for our partners to do good-join us to create a world where everyone can access opportunities to unlock their full potential.
