          Employment & Volunteer Opportunities

          Delco Literacy seeks tutors
             The Delaware County Literacy Council (DCLC) is asking adults in Delaware County to make a New Year’s resolution that will keep on giving in 2014 and beyond.
             Instead of making a traditional New Year's resolution, DCLC suggests volunteering to tutor an adult in reading, math, or English as a Second Language (ESL).
             DCLC has a great need for volunteers. Right now there are nearly 40 adult students waiting for a volunteer tutor.

          Coaches help older adults go online
             What’s a Sip and Swipe Café? A place where older adults are taught computer skills (e.g., swiping) in a warm (coffee-drinking) venue.
             As a Sip and Swipe Café Coach, a volunteer helps an older adult learn to use an iPad as they follow the simple, on screen tutorial provided by Coming of Age partner Generations on Line. The program offers step-by-step instructions to people over age 60 who have never used a computer or tablet before.
             Philadelphia’s first group of coaches will work this winter with older adults at the Philadelphia Senior Center, 509 South Broad St, Philadelphia; Klein JCC, 10100 Jamison Avenue, (off Red Lion Road in NE Philadelphia); and Journey's Way Senior Center, 403 Rector Street at Pechin St. in Roxborough.
             Coaching is fun and requires only amateur iPad skills - just trouble shoot and motivate; all the training is on the screen.
             A full support kit will be available to all coaches, including suggested session guides. Coaches volunteer for an hour or two a week, helping two older adults at a time.

          DRN offers media webinar
             The Disability Rights Network is offering a free online workshop on media advocacy on Tuesday, January 28th from 10am to 12:30pm.
             Most people get their information and often form opinions based on reports from the news media - newspapers, television and radio.  Successful advocacy groups know how to work with the media to deliver their messages and educate members of their communities, as well as policy makers and key decision makers.
             At the webinar, Marie Yeager, an Emmy Award winning television news producer and communications consultant, will help workshop participants learn to use media to attain their goals.
             Participants can view the webinar on their own computers or by visiting Vision for Equality, 718 Arch Street, 6N, in Philadelphia, or the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit at 1605 W. Main Street in Norristown.
             To register and get more details, go here.
