We are Project ICE - IT Classes for Elders and we are looking for volunteers to help senior citizens in the community learn about technology and we need your help!
Highly recommended society of the year 2019 by NSU, runners-up in the National Societies Awards 2019, and "Society of the Month" in 2018, we have also been recognised externally by Go On UK Digital Skills, Digital Leaders Top 100 List, and Truth about Youth PoSBO.
Working alongside the Elders Council of Newcastle, we meet once a week for 2 hours to help older people get the best out of their technology.
This project will hone and showcase your patience, active listening, and extend your abilities to explain IT concepts in simple and understandable terms to those who may have never used a phone before. (All of these skills can benefit your CV too!)
Every session is different, and you could be teaching anything from downloading music, setting up skype, using the internet, or editing poetry!
You don't need to be a computer expert to join the project - you know how things work already!
