Dear Friend of openairboston.net,
Are you interested in using your tech skills to make a difference in our
community? Open Air Boston has an exciting volunteer opportunity that we
think will interest you.
On Saturday, November 21st, we will be hosting Boston Tech Day at the John
D. O'Bryant High School in Roxbury. During this event, computer-savvy
volunteers will offer free computer repair services and provide one-on-one
computer training to low-income Boston residents. A lack of affordable
computer repair services and a lack of knowledge about how to make use of
relevant programs and Internet services are two of the most significant
barriers to technology use for low-income families.
We are looking for:
• Volunteers who are experienced with PC maintenance and repair and feel
comfortable working on other people's computers. We will supply tools and
software, but please feel free to bring your own.
• Volunteers who feel comfortable working one-on-one with families with
little or no computer experience and can demonstrate technologies such as
email and web browsing and useful websites such as as Google and Google
• Volunteers who can help with the logistics of the event - signing people
in, offering directions, etc. It would be particularly helpful if you speak
a second language.
Boston Tech Day will take place from 10-2:30 on Saturday, November 21st at
the John D. O'Bryant High School in Roxbury. Volunteers should arrive at 9am
for orientation. The school is located at: 55 Malcolm X. Boulevard, Building
#3, Roxbury, MA 02120. We will provide coffee and lunch. The school is
accessible from the T and parking will be available.
To sign up, please respond to this email with your name, email address,
telephone number, whether you want to volunteer for training or repair work,
and a very brief statement about your relevant experience.
Also, please feel free to forward this email to anyone you know who might be
