About this Event

Fancy helping local people to overcome the digital divide? Volunteer as a Digital Ambassador and help other citizens of Edinburgh acquire digital life skills!

You don’t need any special training to be a Digital Ambassador – just the ability to use a smartphone, tablet and laptop for everyday things.

Since 2016 The Digital Ambassador project has been helping to improve digital literacy amongst people in the community. As we see everyday tasks like shopping, banking and paying bills move to online platforms, digital literacy is becoming an increasingly necessary life skill. The Digital Ambassadors programme enables volunteers to teach these skills through weekly drop-in classes for the public.

In this induction, you will

  • Learn more about the Digital Ambassadors programme, including the benefits of volunteering with us.
  • Get information about the different groups we work with, including elderly people and BAME women.
  • Hear practical information about how to tutor and what you can expect from the project.
  • Meet other volunteers and ask any questions.
  • Sign up to volunteer with us!

If you have any questions or cannot attend this induction but would still like to volunteer, please email Sibyl Adam at s.adam@ed.ac.uk.
