Are you interested in giving back to the community by volunteering to help a senior in our community?

Are you able to commit to one or two hours of tutoring each week?

Do you possess the computer skills to teach computer basics such as using a mouse, saving files, setting up an email account, and searching the Internet?

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

Thanks to a generous grant from the New Horizons for Seniors Program, LASS has created a Cyber Seniors Computer Tutoring Centre at the Seniors’ Drop-in Centre in Salmon Arm.

There will be four tutoring sessions throughout the year so tutors may choose to sign up for one, two, three or all four sessions:

Session 1: week of Oct. 8 to week of Nov. 26 (eight weeks).

Session 2: week of Jan. 14 to week of March 4  (eight weeks).

Session 3: week of April 1 to week of May 6  (six weeks).

Session 4: week of May 13 to week of June 17 (six weeks).

If you are interested in participating in this community volunteer opportunity, contact Jennifer Findlay, literacy outreach co-ordinator by phone at 250-833-2095 or by email at lassloc@telus.net.
