ISCHOOL INVOLVEMENT
 
 
 
 

Are you interested in putting your computer and technical skills to good use? Do you like working with a variety of people?  If so, then you should think about becoming one of the U of I Tech Volunteers at Clark-Lindsey Village (a retirement community located just south of campus at Windsor and Race).  The U of I Tech Help at CLV Project started as a service-learning opportunity 12.5 years ago.  Students spend an hour on Friday afternoons (from 3-4 pm) in the CLV library helping residents with basic tech-related issues ranging from document formatting and setting up email on mobile devices to troubleshooting printers and using FaceTime, and everything else in between!  Check out this 2013 YouTube video about the project!

Use your skills to make a positive impact in someone else’s life!  Become a Tech Volunteer! Bring a friend!!  Help spread the word! This project is open to anyone on campus- not just INFO students.

If you are interested in participating this summer or in the fall, please send Karin Readel an email (kereadel@illinois.edu) to be added to the list.
