Computer Coaches can make a real difference in a person's life by helping them improve their computer literacy abilities, an essential life skill in our increasingly modern world. Coaches work one-on-one with adult learners on a variety of beginner-level computer tasks including writing emails, utilizing the Microsoft Office Suite, creating online accounts, filling out online forms, maneuvering websites and search engines, and printing and scanning on MPL public devices.
