Teaching Assistant - Digital Skills for Seniors

The Wyoming State Museum will be offering a free, eight-week course called "Digital Skills for Seniors" to help older adults get comfortable using an apple device to access the internet, utilize tools like the magnifying glass to read small dinner menus, connect with friends and family on social media, and more.

The course will be instructed by a Wyoming State Museum staff member. Each class will build on the previous lesson and will include time for one-on-one assistance and practice. That’s where you come in!

Role:

We need a one or two volunteers per class to help the instructor provide one-on-one guidance to participants between lessons. You are qualified for the role if you are comfortable using an iPad and interacting with older adults.

Shifts will be on Wednesdays from 8:15 am to 10:15 am, beginning July 7 and ending August 25. You may sign up to help with all 8 classes (16 hours) or for as few as 2 classes (4 hours).

Benefits:

This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to develop teaching skills and help the older people in our community become more connected to the digital world. Snacks and beverages will be provided for participants and the volunteer teaching assistants for each class. Volunteering in this role may lead to future opportunities working in the museum’s collections, education, and community engagement departments.
