Literacy Volunteers of Rochester Inc. needs volunteers to help library patrons learn basic computer skills, such as navigating the internet or using Microsoft Word.
Trained volunteers help patrons complete computer-essential tasks, like creating online accounts, developing resumes, searching for jobs and getting social services.
“Some 15 percent of Rochester households do not have computers, according to the American Community Survey,” said Brian Kane, program coordinator. “Local residents rely heavily on our volunteers to learn new skills and complete essential tasks. More volunteers are needed now to meet the huge demand.”
Volunteers must have three years of experience on a PC, knowledge of Google and its apps, an ability to work with diverse people, patience and flexibility. Visit literacyrochester.org for information.
