Do you need help to use a computer or basic technology?  Our computer lab is now available for those who need help, or for you to practice computer skills. 

We focus on building each person’s confidence and comfort in using computers and digital technology, our services target those basic skills.  Through one-on-one tutoring or small group workshops, we ensure that each person receives the level of assistance they need to master their new skills.

 

Our computer lab has some computers and iPads available for you to practice your skills.  Once we identify your goals, we can provide you with practice exercises and resources to help you.  You will have access to internet, and we can help you set up an email or social media account.  You can drop in and use our computers to practice (please call ahead for best service and to confirm availability - not available during New Futures week or during some workshops).  

 

Most of the basic skills for computers are best learned one-on-one, as everyone’s needs and skills are individual.  Workshops may be announced from time to time, but these services are always available.
