Are you interested in helping people to get online? Do you have time to volunteer in a library?

You don't have to be a digital expert, patience and a general knowledge of the internet are all that is required and full training will be given. Using the Learn My Way platform you would be helping people to gain the digital skills to send their first email through 1 to 1 tuition.
