Computer Buddies Note: this program is currently on hiatus. When we are able to schedule a new set of meetings, the dates and times will appear below. In the meantime, if you are interested, please contact librarian Chris Miller using the phone number or e-mail address provided below.
During meetings of Computer Buddies, tech-savvy teen volunteers (in grades 8 to 12) help children in grades 3 to 5 improve their computer skills.
Meetings are always in the Computer Lab at the City Centre Branch. Each will begin with a 15-minute lesson, after which the kids can work collaboratively with the teens on projects of their choice. Teens will provide advice, help kids work through problems, and show them tips and tricks about computer use.
Volunteers or parents interested in the program should contact librarian Chris Miller by phone at 604-554-7339, or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org Parents
who want to register children should include the names of the kids (first and last), the grades they are in at school, and a phone number. Volunteers
should include information about their experience working with kids, as well as their strengths when working with computers.
