COMPUTER LAB ASSISTANTS

Volunteers are needed at both our Hampton and Newport News locations for various shifts throughout the day.

Tutor teaches man at computer

You do not have to be a computer expert!

Many adults come to Peninsula READS with very little to no basic computer skills, such as using a mouse, navigating the internet, or sending an email.  With the understanding of technology becoming more critical to everyday living, volunteer Computer Lab Assistants introduce adult learners to these skills and help them learn to use widely used software programs.

 

 

As a Computer Lab Assistant, you'll get to:
 

  • Answer basic questions about using computer software
     

  • Help learners feel more confident and motivated
     

  • Support the work being done in tutoring sessions by being assigned to work one-on-one with a learner on various literacy websites
