Volunteers share IT tips
Telstra volunteers are sharing their IT knowledge with ACH Group IT Getting Connected workshop participants. Last month volunteers attended workshops at McLaren Vale and Campbelltown to answer questions about social media, skyping, cyber security, iPad and Android basics and more.
Telstra Community Engagement Manager Jessica Le says the voluntary work is part of Telstra’s corporate social responsibility program.
“Our employees are given a day a year of paid volunteer leave and we encourage them to give people one on one time to assist them with technology, whether it’s a laptop, phone or iPad, or to demystify the concept of the NBN,” she says.
Lawrie Neaylon attended a session at Campbelltown Library and had some help finding out how to transfer photos from his phone to his laptop so that he could email photos to family in Victoria. “It’s great to have someone help you one on one, I find that really helpful,” he said.
