As a digital champion, my role is to go through and explain to clients a program called ‘Learn My Way.’ This program helps people understand computers, tablets and phones, and how to do the different variety of functions that the device can carry out. For example, from online banking and booking GP appointments, to using a mouse and keyboard confidently. Giving people this skill in the modern day society, will help them when applying for a job, or just to benefit them by learning a new skill.
There are numerous reasons why I love volunteering at Northfield Community Partnership. One being the members of staff which I work alongside, I feel they have welcoming, working attitudes and always make the role enjoyable. The organisation makes positive contributions to the local community, and clients leave the partnership with smiling faces. I also enjoy volunteering at Northfield Community Partnership because of the role that I carry out. This is due to the fact that I, myself am a confident computer user. It satisfies me to be able to encourage others to develop this skill and gain the benefits that this brings. Computer skills are useful, as they can help with making tasks simpler and clearer. Another reason why I enjoy volunteering at Northfield Community Partnership is because whilst you watch clients’ skills develop, you are also able to build formal relationships and bonds with individuals.
