Connecting Seniors with Technology

Meals on Wheels Central Texas seeks volunteers to provide computer instruction and in-home technical assistance to older adults living in their own homes.

Volunteer as a Tech Companion:

Each volunteer is matched with a client and they request a minimum commitment of once a week for one hour for approximately 12 weeks.  Scheduled sessions are flexible. It will be helpful if volunteers have computer experience and familiarity with the Internet. Clients will be using Chromebook Tablets for the sessions.

The goal of the program is to keep our clients connected to family, friends and the community by increasing their knowledge and comfort level with technology.

Research Volunteer:

Develop one page practice sheets on local topics and current events for clients to improve their navigation skills using the Internet.
