Basic Technology Corps

Advanced technology skills are not required to volunteer with the Corps, just a desire to learn and expand opportunities for your community!
 

The Basic Technology Corps combines Boston Cares’ signature flexibility with a focused commitment to an impact area and the resources to make a measurable change. Corps volunteers are a part of a network of volunteers who share a passion for enhancing others’ tech skills. Volunteers select a partner organization focused on addressing 21st century skills development that affects Boston’s communities. Corps volunteers deepen their community engagement by committing to serve twice-a-month through the Corps and attending skill building opportunities.

See a complete list of expectations and benefits of the Corps program, here.

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in:

 
1. Joining the Basic Technology Corps and meeting the Corps expectations, including serving 2 times/month at one of our Corps partner sites.
 
2. Working in classrooms and community centers one-on-one with student and adult learners to build Basic Technology Skills.
 
3. Creating activities for existing class topics and assisting with connecting the skills learned into a real world, career focused context
