Volunteer Opportunity – Provide tech help at Clark Lindsey Retirement Village

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!

Open to everyone

Use your skills to make a positive impact in someone else’s life! 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 kereadel@illinois.edu.
