We are seeking volunteer digital mentors to assist learners over the age of 50 to become digitally literate. Inspire learners one-on-one or in a small group to get online and develop digital skills. Learners will range in their skills from having no prior experience to intermediate. Possible topics may include:
- What is a computer?
- What is the internet
- How to use a keyboard
- Safe passwords
- Paying safely online
- Using the internet
- How to use Zoom
Students face different barriers to accessing digital devices, such as fear, accessibility or lack of knowledge and support. It is important that you, as a mentor, are aware of these barriers and have a lot of patience to offer support to the learner.
If you speak a language other than English, please do no hesitate to apply, as we often help people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds who find it hard to access information in their language.
For further information, please contact our office: 02 9482 1189 [email protected] We are located on Level 1, 45-47 Hunter Street, Hornsby NSW
