We currently have volunteer opportunities for in-person Digital Champions to support our projects in North Yorkshire and Merseyside. We’re also looking for remote digital champions to support people in North Yorkshire over the phone.
What does it take to be a Digital Champion?
You don’t have to be a technical whizz. You do need to be patient, understanding and a great communicator.
Digital Champions volunteer their time to help others to improve their digital skills and benefit from using the internet safely. Every learner is different, but common tasks you’d be helping people with include:
- Finding their way around a device
- Setting up an email account
- Searching for information on the internet
- Using communication tools like Zoom and Facetime
- Signposting to hobbies
The great thing about volunteering is that you can help out at a time that suits you, and even a short amount of time each week can make a life-changing difference to someone!
