Digital Mentoring

Nowadays, technology is an essential part of life. This is creating disadvantage and trauma for people who don’t have the skills to use it.

If you’d like to be part of the solution and make a difference in the lives of people in your community, why not try volunteering as a digital mentor?

In this role, you would support people one-on-one to build basic digital skills. We have positions available at multiple locations and times.

Help us close the digital divide!
