New Online Adult Basic Computer Literacy Program

We are very excited to launch a brand new program for the new year, namely Adult Basic Computer Literacy. The goal of this program is to reduce isolation through increasing knowledge of electronic devices, learning how to navigate the internet including social media, accessing important online resources, filling in online forms and being critical of sources reducing the risk of scams.
Learners are those who lack computer skills, but are able to access and use email and are in possession of a device with a camera, as learning sessions will take place over an online platform.
Trained and screened volunteer tutors will support group sessions (2-6 participants), which would take place twice a week over four weeks (one month). A session would be between 1-1,5 hours. We would request volunteer tutors to facilitate at least 4 groups per year. Another option is 1:1 tutoring support for those who need a bit more attention.
As the sessions take place online, you can learn or tutor from the comfort of your own home.
Potential Volunteers:
You will need to fill in an intake form and send it to admin@victorialiteracyconnection.ca.
Here is the link:
If you do not have a valid criminal record check (valid = under 5 years), then we can facilitate the process.
We wish to start the program in February and the first training/orientation will take place in January. Learning materials and online platform access will be provided.
Potential Learners:
If you are interested in attending these free sessions, kindly email: admin@victorialiteracyconnection.ca or call: 250-385-0014.
You will be asked about your learning goals, which device(s) you wish to learn using and your perceived level of computer skills.
A VLC staff person will be on hand to support learners and volunteers throughout the process.
The learning sessions will take place all year round, so learners and volunteers are welcome to join us anytime, though we are looking forward to getting started.
We look forward to hearing from you!
