Are you a tech whizz? Can you navigate a smart phone like it's a second limb? Then we need your help!
During the July School Holidays we need young people aged 14 - 25 to volunteer as tech mentors, helping local seniors to become Techno Savvy. You will be helping seniors to learn basic tasks on their smartphone, tablet or laptop – maybe even show them a few handy websites and apps.
In exchange for your skills you will receive a certificate and the chance to make a new mate!
Volunteers need to attend these two activities:
Volunteer Briefing Session
Date: Tuesday 26 June, 4pm – 5pm @ Kalamunda Library
During this one hour session, the Youth Services Team will give you an overview of what to expect on the day of the Techno Savvy Seniors workshop. You will receive a list of technology related activities and skills that you may be required to perform in your role as a Tech Mentor – for example; turning a device on and off, connecting to Wi-Fi, helpful websites and apps, etc. The Seniors & Disabilities Officer will also be present to give some helpful advice on how to best work with seniors. We hope that this briefing session will help both our young volunteers and local seniors get the most out of the Techno Savvy Workshop. It’s also a great chance for volunteers to meet one another!
Techno Savvy Seniors Workshop
Date: Tuesday 3 July, 10:30am – 12:30pm @ Woodlupine Community Centre, Forrestfield
The actual ‘Techno Savvy Seniors’ workshop will be held at Woodlupine Community Centre during the July School Holidays. Here the volunteers will be paired up with a senior and work with them to learn basic tech skills on their laptop, tablet or smartphone. Volunteers will be working off the list of simple tasks that will be given to them at the ‘Briefing Session’ to help figure out what the senior already knows and what they would like to know.
