Thank You to Our Curriculum Volunteers

April is National Volunteer month!

 

The Board of Directors, Staff, and I would like to personally thank each of you for your support and significant contributions. Our Director of Curriculum Development, Hank Clemente, has said that your work has been invaluable. 

 

Writing curriculum (teaching material) and organizing it in a way that helps seniors comprehend and feel confident about using a computer is an art form.  

 

You are SeniorNet's Michelangelo's !

    

Again, thank you for helping to make SeniorNet one of the most respected nonprofit organizations in the world.

 

Sincerely,

We have been recognized again as an organization with skills, expertise, and most of all the true spirit of Volunteerism.

This time it's folks we see every day, in every city and state in our great country. See the open letter invitation below.

I am going to volunteer in this effort and ask that you consider it as well.

Thank You,

Herndon, Virginia 20170

Dear Chairman Smith,

It has been over a year that I had to separate myself from the Board of Directors of SeniorNet. I really came to admire SeniorNet, its mission, members, volunteers, and leadership.

Parents Alliance has developed a really good educational portal specifically aimed at Hispanic adults, I have been thinking about the need that exists in parts of the country where low-to-medium income Hispanics don't have the opportunity join our PACT Program® that teaches Digital Learning and Financial Literacy in Spanish.

The program brings many benefits to our students. In just 32 hours they learn computer basics and financial literacy. Even though we teach these courses mostly at schools, we have had people who join our Virtual Class and learn through an online tutor. However, the project I want to propose to you is even better.

Since SeniorNet volunteers and the leadership team are skilled professionals --- they could act as "mentors/guides" teaching Hispanics how to use the computer under our Self-Study program.

Even if the SeniorNet volunteer doesn't speak Spanish this will not be an issue. All we need is for them to teach a few very basic things that we have in a written guide:

  • How to connect a computer
  • How to turn on and off a comptuer
  • How to use the mouse
  • How to use the keyboard
  • How to open an email account. This is a little bit more difficult, but we already have detailed step-by-step instructions.
  • How to access our Superate y Triunfa portal

Once they reach this point, they can proceed by themselves. All the instructions are easy to follow.

I know that SeniorNet has engaged in programs to help children read as well as reaching out to the American Indians by placing learning centers on reservations. You have also reached out internationally.

If we could partner and make this work, we would be able to approach thousands of adults in the U.S. and it would be a great collaboration.

Please share this invitation with your organization. We have a skilled and motivated staff ready to answer questions --- please ask SeniorNet volunteers to contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.

Thank you very much Chairman Smith, I wish you and SeniorNet continued success.
