Seniors Training Seniors in Technology
The City of Seattle Technology Resources Department sponsors a
"Computer Basics" class designed to introduce seniors to the
fundamentals of computer use. These classes are presented at
various sites around the city. The classes are taught by seniors
and utilize a number of seniors as assistants to help those who
are learning a little slower.
The city provides 6 hours of training for those who are
interested in becoming either assistants or lead instructors. You
are asked to commit to teaching or assisting at least one class
after the training. If you are reasonably comfortable using your
computer and can use the internet, you have the qualifications
needed for the assistant positions.
This is very rewarding volunteer work--I've assisted at two of
these classes and I loved it! On the average you would probably
have the opportunity to help present a class every other month or
so. If you are interested, contact:
