support-gang -- Community Support Volunteers -- who help respond to "help AT"


About support-gang
English (USA)

Community Support Volunteers help answer emails and/or phones to provide basic, high-quality Tech Support to One Laptop per Child owners worldwide. Our team of 200+ worldwide volunteers meets near Cambridge, Massachusetts, online, and by telephone, with weekly calls. Begun in December 2007, we have an amazingly enthusiastic and deeply talented diverse team.

Do you have exceptional writing, technical and/or organizational abilities?
Are you naturally supportive and friendly towards those who are eager to just get started?
Do you demonstrate sincerity, appreciate an earnest team, and truly adore learning?

Our informal group tries to meet for weekly conference calls, often with an international guest speaker to motivate our work.

Contact "holt AT" if you are interested in committing to help in any capacity, supporting our worldwide learning community. Join us by including your talents, motivations and your phone number(s) to apply -- also tell us the best times to call you -- and THANKS!

Finally, other volunteer opportunities are available on our Participate page.
