Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Community Tech Network (CTN)

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Help an awesome group of older adults embarking on an iPad journey through the Curry Senior Vitality program! This is a program run in partnership with Curry Senior Center and Mission Neighborhood Centers to help seniors learn how to use an iPad to access vital healthcare resources, such as apps that manage their appointments and medications.

In this program, you'll help Spanish-speaking older adults learn more about telehealth, and get them connected to fitness apps on an iPad to help them become more independent in managing their health!

Requirements:

  • Basic familiarity with an iPad
  • Fluent in Spanish (spoken and/or written) is necessary
  • Commitment to one two-hour shift per week between Monday-Friday

If you're interested, please apply using this link: https://communitytechnetwork.org/volunteer/#apply

Mission Statement

Community Tech Network (CTN) programs help ensure that everyone has the skills necessary to use digital technology and close the digital divide. CTN works with a variety of organizations to close the digital divide. CTN provides a range of services to address technology related issues faced by underserved communities. Our services include program planning, staff training, volunteer training, fund development, community outreach and evaluation support. Our partners include housing developments, senior centers, social service agencies and other community based organizations. Learners gain skills essential to full participation in our 21st century society such as how to access public services online, job-searching techniques, online education, and interacting with others online safely.

Description

DIGITAL SKILLS TRAINING
Raising the Level of Digital Literacy: CTN works with community partners to provide FREE access to computers, the Internet, and skilled instructors. However, with the rise in ownership of tablets and smartphones-among seniors in particular-many training sessions now help people optimize the use of their own device.

CONNECT @ HOME
Getting More Households Online: Sometimes it simply isn’t feasible for someone to go to a library or community center to learn basic computer skills. Therefore, CTN works in partnership to help low-income families and older adults get connected to internet at home.

DEVELOPING DIGITAL LEADERS
Creating Community-Tech Champions: CTN believes that for projects to be sustainable, there must be people who are dedicated to the cause and take a lead in their community
