Summary

Enthusiastic volunteers required to join our team This is a great opportunity for someone who would like to help people struggling with technology.

Detailed description

Drop-In Helper volunteers required for our Redbourn drop-in held on Monday afternoons.


You’ll need a reasonable working knowledge of Windows/Apple/Android devices, and the patience to help a complete beginner, often an older person, with problems or questions they may have about using these devices. You will find a great sense of achievement and satisfaction in helping people understand how to use and enjoy the many benefits of a digital device.

 

If you are technically oriented and like a challenge then this volunteering opportunity is for you. Our customers come to us with every sort of computer problem that you can imagine and some that you cannot! You don’t have to be an expert in everything but patience and a desire to help others is key. Your skills may be Windows, Android tablets, phones, iPads, Software or Social Media apps. Just contact us for an informal discussion.

About Computer Friendly

Computer Friendly is a non-profit organisation staffed with friendly and experienced unpaid volunteers. We have been delivering low cost computer training in the community since 2002, to adults who may want an alternative to more formal or commercial courses. In 2020 we were awarded the very prestigious Queens Award for Voluntary Services.

Our objective is to help anyone in St Albans and District, including disadvantaged and excluded people, to gain computer skills. These people could include the retired, unemployed or disabled from diverse groups.

We aim to support individuals who would benefit from our unique style of learning. We use premises in St Albans, London Colney, Wheathampstead, Flamstead, Harpenden and Redbourn to provide weekly Drop-In Centres for information, advice & guidance, and deliver 50 courses each year for beginners, as well as diverse Internet-based leisure courses.
