Bilingual Volunteers Needed to Help Seniors Learn How to Use Technology! 

Impact of COVID-19 has altered the way Community Tech Network provides support to seniors and higher aged adults. We need education advocates like YOU to help these populations gain internet comfortability by supporting them as their personal Digital Coach! 

Having home internet connectivity and knowledge is more important than ever! It might be hard to believe, but there are many people in San Francisco who don't have access to the internet and have never learned how to use digital technology. CTN Digital Coach Volunteers will support senior learners in the safety and comfort of their home or residence through our new online program, Home Connect.  
 
Only basic computer skills needed. What is more important is that you are patient, friendly, and interested in supporting adult learners! There is an especially high need for Cantonese and Spanish speakers! This is a great way to give back to adults in your own community by giving them the skills they need to stay connected to friends and family and access vital resources, in their native language. 

What you will do: 

  • Commit to a weekly tutoring shift that lasts for roughly 1 hour. 
  • Help an adult/senior learn how to use their computer or other applications on their device. 
  • Act as a resource and guide, helping them learn how to find verifiable resources and information. 
  • Build relationships with diverse groups while honing your teaching skills.
