Digital Volunteers are volunteers that help people get to grips with IT. Whether it's searching the internet, setting up an email account, using their mobile phone or tablet. Do you:
- feel confident using IT?
- understand the latest technology?
- thrive on helping others?
If the answer is yes then why not become a Digital Volunteer.
Digital volunteers can work with learners on a one-to-one basis and meet in a public venue such as a community centre, library, WiFi enabled café or pub. Other digital volunteers may prefer to set up and work with a small group of adults. Again, libraries or WiFi enabled community halls are popular venues for group activities.
You might need to support a learner with their own laptop or desktop or help someone with their tablet, e-book reader or smartphone. You don't need to be an expert in all these technologies, but a general awareness of what each can do would be useful.
We will support you with training in this role.
How to volunteer
The first step in the volunteer process is to complete the expression of interest, regardless of the type of volunteering opportunity you are interested in.
