BruinTech: First Fridays

Location:  YRL Research Commons, First Floor of Library
Friday, April 7, 2017 - 9:30am to 11:30am

First Fridays is a program in which volunteers work one-on-one with retired UCLA staff and faculty to help them with technology. Retirees often need help using their smartphones, downloading an app from the app store, setting up email or navigating social media.

If you own a smartphone and/or laptop, chances are you will be able to help answer their questions! You can come for as much time as you are able to and will be paired with a client based on your skill set. We do not provide any “repair” work for the clients, so volunteers do not need to be from a very technical background or know how to fix computers.

Our goal is to help bring the emeriti and retiree population into the digital age by helping them feel comfortable with technology. This is a great, easy opportunity to give back to the UCLA community!

Please email bruintech@ucla.edu to volunteer.
