Donate Your Time
We are always in need of new faces to volunteer at our center! We have fun working and improving others lives! Our center is open Monday through Thursday from 12pm to 5pm and Saturday from 9am to 1pm. No experience is necessary, you will receive all the training you need at our center. Our volunteers refurbish donated computers to get them ready for use by blind and low vision clients. This is a great experience to learn a bit about computers and how they work.
As a volunteer, you will be taught all the steps needed to set a computer up and get all the specialized software running for our clients.
The tasks may include:
- Checking in/verifying donations to be built for clients
- Maintaining/managing inventory
- Wiping donated hard drives clean
- Imaging hard drives with our customized setup
- Cleaning the internals of the computer
- Replacing the hard drive, memory and other internals of the computer
- Setting up system options and software for the client
- Repairing returned problem systems
Apart from working in our center, we also have other areas of need for volunteer service.
- Marketing, Social Media, Public Relations and Communications backgrounds
- Strong corporate Information Technology contacts
- Experience in finding and working with donors to get equipment
- Board Leadership in a Not-for-Profit environment
