Are you interested in putting your computer and technical skills to good use? Do you like working with a variety of people? If so, then you should think about becoming one of the U of I Tech Volunteers at Clark-Lindsey Village (a retirement community located just south of campus at Windsor and Race; rides are provided to volunteers). The U of I Tech Help at CLV Project started as a service learning opportunity 10 years ago. Students spend an hour on Friday afternoons (from 3-4 pm) in the CLV library helping residents with basic tech-related issues ranging from document formatting and setting up email on mobile devices to troubleshooting printers and using FaceTime, and everything else in between!
Use your skills to make a positive impact in someone else’s life! Become a Tech Volunteer! Bring a friend!! Help spread the word! This project is open to anyone on campus- not just Informatics students. If you are interested in this project, please send your name and contact information to Karin Readel, the Informatics Education Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
