What you need to know about volunteering & digital champions


Digital champion is an emerging form of volunteering that reflects contemporary living and technology-adoption maturity. In addition to the expectations of traditional volunteers, a digital Champions helps others understand the benefits of using the internet and shows them how to do simple things online.

You don’t need to be a computer whizz, you just need to have a bit of spare time, enjoy being online yourself, with a passion for helping (and enjoy being around) others.
