Volunteers needed to help seniors become cyber savvy

Are you interested in helping a senior in our community?

Are you able to commit to one hour of computer tutoring each week? Do you possess the computer skills to teach any or all of the following computer basics: how to use a mouse, how to set up an email account, how to search for information on the internet or how to use an iPad or tablet?

The Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) is currently recruiting volunteer computer tutors in Salmon Arm, Sicamous, Enderby and Blind Bay to work with local seniors who are in need of basic computer support.
