Become a Gluu Digital Coach
Volunteer with Gluu
Help older adults in your community gain the digital skills they need to be part of the modern world.
A Gluu Digital Coach is a volunteer who works with us to help older adults learn basic digital skills. Our goal is to teach older adults how to use technology to stay in touch with family and friends, manage email effectively, save money and time shopping online, find what they need on the web, and understand how to stay secure online.
You don’t need to be an expert. If you know how to send an email, shop online, and use Facebook or Zoom, then you have valuable digital skills to share. In just a few hours per month, you can make a meaningful difference to someone trying to gain confidence online.
We provide training, teaching resources, student learning materials, and the support you need to succeed. You handle the human connection and let us do the rest.
Together we can help make digital skills stick.
Please note: Our volunteer opportunities are virtual until at least April 21, 2022, due to COVID restrictions.
