Become a Gluu Digital Coach

Volunteer with Gluu

Together we will teach older adults the essential digital skills they need to be part of the modern world.

You don’t need to be an expert. In just a few hours per month, you can make a meaningful difference to someone trying to gain confidence online. If you know how to send an email, shop online, or use Facebook or Zoom, you have valuable digital skills to share.

You handle the human connection, and let us do the rest. We provide online training & resources for you and your students with full support from the Gluu Crew. Together we can help make digital skills stick.

Thanks for stepping up. Please, fill in the application form below to get started.

(Due to COVID restrictions, our volunteer opportunities are virtual until in-person sessions are feasible.)

can use a computer or mobile device

You don't need to be an expert. If you are comfortable using your device, then you have valuable skills to share.

excited about the positive effects of technology

We live in amazing times. Gluu is looking for people who can share that excitement with those just getting started.

friendly, empathetic & reliable

That is quite a list! Being someone who can work comfortably with older adults of all skill levels and in all situations.

good at explaining concepts in simple terms

Keeping it simple makes concepts stick. We help you explain complex topics using relatable language using examples.

knows when to stop talking & start listening

There is a lot of information to share when teaching digital skills. It's important to do that in bite-sized pieces.

loads of patience

Stress is a confidence buster. A good Digital Coach is patient no matter what kind of day you've had or how many times you repeat a lesson. Patience = compassion.
