Last week the inaugural “Digital Mentors: the Heart of the Digital Revolution” Forum was hosted in Sydney by a working group that includes Leep, Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association, Brisbane Seniors OnLine and Good Things Foundation, Australia. The Forum focused on establishing a coordinated approach towards digital literacy advocacy and service delivery in Australia and was attended by representatives from the digital inclusion space from across multiple sectors and states.
Leep believes championing digital inclusion and better investment in digital literacy programs is crucial to ensuring communities all experience the social and economic benefits technology has to offer. As part of this work, Leep is growing its digital literacy outreach program in western NSW; currently establishing new programs in Dubbo, Orange and Bathurst, and training 100 digital mentors.
We are currently seeking volunteer digital mentors to support these programs and hiring an Outreach Officer in Orange. To apply for the position, click here. If you like to express you interest as a digital mentor, click here.
