Descrição

Digital Literacy Program Volunteer

Many Languages One Voice (MLOV), was founded in 2010, and our mission is to foster the leadership and greater civic participation of immigrants and refugees who do not speak English as a primary language. We believe an actively engaged community that challenges existing inequities by dominant power is key to achieving systemic change. Thus, we support our members’ leadership and amplify the voice of our most vulnerable members to find solutions to the systemic racial inequities that impact their lives. 

MLOV is a leading player in the immigrant rights and justice movement in DC and regularly builds partnerships and coalitions with wide-ranging stakeholders. In addition to nonprofits and community organizations, MLOV works with government officials, agencies, businesses, and worker groups to advance power-building of immigrant communities in DC.

Are you passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of immigrants? Do you have language and digital skills that can bridge communication gaps and foster connections? If so, we invite you to join our Digital Literacy Program as a dedicated volunteer!

MLOV Digital Literacy Program: Digital literacy is an important component of our parent engagement programs, which have joint goals of 1) developing the confidence and leadership of parents to participate in their children’s education, while 2) building transferable skills that participants can utilize in the job-market, when/if starting a small businesses, and to seeking additional job training/education. 

Through our program, participants with no or very limited digital skills can learn foundational digital literacy skills, such as finding resources/information online to support themselves and their children, creating Microsoft Word and Google Doc documents, creating a powerpoint presentation, basics of computer and web safety, and more! Participants also develop their soft-skills by working on projects together and presenting to the class as a group and individually.
