Become a Digital Champion!
- Would you like to improve your IT skills and knowledge?
- Do you want to be part of a network of volunteers providing IT help to people across Bolton?
- Are you able to help us reduce digital exclusion, prevent isolation and improve mental health?
If so, the Digital Champion programme is a great way to make that happen!
We are recruiting volunteers from all across Bolton to support members of their community, family and colleagues to show them the benefits to being online including convenience, financial savings, connecting with others and much more.
Digital Champions are volunteers or employees within the community who have some basic understanding of digital devices, computer applications and being online. They also have the willingness to pass their skills and knowledge on to other people and highlight the many benefits of digital literacy.
Digital Champions will receive training and ongoing support to improve their own digital expertise and advice on how to deliver their newly developed skills to others. As part of their training Digital Champions will have support from staff, access to training, printable help guides and peer support from the network of champions. Champions will also have access to the Digital Unite platform for training and resources.
This brilliant new opportunity is completely free! Get in touch to hear more about the Digital Champions Network and how you could be a part of it.
The Digital Champions Network is being developed by Starts With You in conjunction with Bolton at Home, Bolton Council and the GMCA.
