The Computer Lab is Looking for Instructors

Like to help others? Have an inquisitive mind? Use electronic devices like a desktop computer, a laptop computer, a tablet, or a smartphone?    Consider joining the Computer Lab instructor team. They help members use their electronic   devices and software applications.  This is not a professional team.  It is Senior Center members that have acquired a level of skill on some of these devices and software and want to help other members use and enjoy theirs. Not sure you have the knowledge or skills to do this?   We will team you up with another instructor until you are   comfortable doing it alone. If you are interested in helping with this service, contact Kathy Sazima RN at 440-580-3277.
