Volunteers are an essential resource for providing training and support to libraries and computer centers. They can act as tutors, trainers, and technicians, ensuring that computers get repaired and new computer users receive the attention they need. Recruiting, training, and retaining volunteers can be a challenge for organizations with limited staff.
Attend this free webinar and hear from organizations that use volunteers to support their digital literacy programs. Kami Griffiths, Executive Director of Community Technology Network, will interview Roberta Przybylski, Director of Austin Computer Learning Center to share best practices on how to recruit, screen, provide training to volunteers, and what it takes to retain them for many years.
This webinar will be most useful for nonprofits and libraries that have public computers and want to learn how to better utilize volunteers to help improve computer literacy and broadband adoption.
