One-to-One Technology Coaching Program

My new employer, DOROT, is beginning a new program to match older persons seeking technology assistance at home one-on-one with volunteers. Below are a few specifics:

  • Initial pilot will focus on basic smartphone functionality: voice calls, texting and email
  • Volunteers must be able to visit two older persons for up to 4 one hour sessions from late May through August
  • Volunteers will receive a 90 minute training as well as a detailed curriculum to use during the sessions
  • No specific background is required, but it would be helpful to have familiarity with using either an Android or iPhone device
