Tutoring Volunteer Opportunity - Boston:
Computer literacy@work is a free program that will be offered to English learning
Boston residents starting in spring 2023. This program is funded by the Department of
Innovation and Technology and the office of the Mayor Michelle Wu. The program has
been designed to help low-English/limited computer proficient adults overcome
challenges encountered day-to-day in the digital age. This course will teach skills
including searching for information on the internet, communicating using email and
social media, finding employment, online safety and avoiding scams. Learners will gain
and improve confidence using English in a safe, supportive environment.
We are looking for volunteers to help us run the Computer literacy@work classes.
