Bright Ideas is currently recruiting volunteers for a volunteering course that starts next month. The course is being run as part of the WEA’s DAIN (Digital Activist Inclusion Network) project.
Volunteers should be comfortable with using IT but do not need to be experts. On the course they will learn about how they can work with other local people to support them to use IT (e.g. setting up an email account, using facebook, searching for something on the internet etc)
Benefits to volunteers:
- Learn in a supportive environment
- Gain great skills and experience for their CV.
- Work in pairs when volunteering
- Get support from a Coordinator.
Past volunteers have really enjoyed the course and the volunteering activities and many of them have wanted to continue volunteering beyond the agreed time. The course is free and all expenses are paid.
Start time 10.00am finishing 2.30pm including lunch break.
Please bring a packed lunch if you wish.
Session 1: Tuesday 15th November
Session 2: Tuesday 22nd November
Session 3: Tuesday 29th November
Session 4: Tuesday 6th December
Session 5: Tuesday 13th December
Volunteers must be available for most or all of the sessions.
The course will be run at the Media Centre in the Broadway Cinema, Nottingham City Centre
All travel expenses for the course will be reimbursed.
This course is for people who are
- Comfortable with using a computer
- Aged 19 or over and eligible to work in the UK
