Austin Free-Net is helping to provide free access to computers for those who are unable to afford one or do not have access to internet. They help people learn basic computer skills and also help people with finding jobs. They have a public computer lab and a employment search lab. While volunteering I have been able to help people formulate their resumes, find jobs that match their skills, and teach computer skills. The staff is great and the work is fun...

I love Austin Free-Net!! As a volunteer, I can direct my own path and learn what I want to through volunteering. I started out as a trainer, teaching people how to use the computer in the labs. This was a ton of fun and I learned a lot about how to give clear directions (harder than it sounds) I also helped write resumes, taught typing, and built a game. Then I moved into the Admin side of the office, making ads, doing research, analyzing data. I really enjoy being able to contribute in a way that celebrates MY skills and the people are amazing. I love working with the clients at Austin Free-Net, and I've made some deep friendships that really endeared me to this wonderful organization.
