Technology Assistant Volunteer

Community Services Regular - more than 6 months Kwinana Town Centre WA

About this opportunity

There's never been a better time to get online. The Technology Assistant Volunteer role includes assisting people face to face to learn the basics of navigating devices and help them understand the full potential of going online using a computer versus a mobile device. Volunteers best suited for this role will be able to explain eSafety, help choose appropriate hardware or software and guide library members to use available resources, such as eBooks, and be willing to learn about the library’s eResources. Build your confidence in teaching people and learning together. This role will offer opportunities to converse with a large variety of people regularly at Kwinana Library and occasionally at the City’s community centres. We would prefer a fixed time commitment of 2-to-4 hours/week, on Tuesday mornings and one other day to compliment other activities but hours can be flexible.

Your conversations with people will be highly valued input to identify future programs, workshops, events or other activities to increase digital literacy in Kwinana.
