The Sun City Computer Club welcomes volunteers to assist with our various programs. Anyone can contribute. For most of the opportunities, no experience is required – just a willingness to get involved and help. Training is provided for more involved volunteer roles. Here’s your chance to increase your skills while assisting others!
If you would like to volunteer for our Club but don’t know where you might fit in, check out the opportunities below:
A monitor is an essential member of the Computer Club operation. No activity can proceed in the facilities without a monitor on duty. Club members are encouraged to consider volunteering to become monitors. Training is offered as a one-hour one-on-one session with an instructor.
Monitors are club members who volunteer to monitor in the Open Room at the Computer Club facilities. Our primary function is to welcome members who come into the room and give them directions when requested. There are no technical skills required to become a monitor. Most members who come to the room are there to use the computers and other devices. If a member needs assistance, the monitor may be able to help, but monitors only offer help to their knowledge level. The monitor usually directs the member to the club website, where there are calendars for scheduled classes; help sessions, professional help, and other services. The professionals are suggested only and have no vested relationship with the Computer Club. Their work is independent of the Club, where fees are applicable from the technician for their services.
The Open Room Calendar is available to the monitor for selecting a date and time that is convenient for the monitor. The most important time to volunteer is when classes are in the classroom and during help sessions. Monitors are given access to the open room an hour before and an hour after s/he is scheduled. We ask that monitors volunteer a minimum of three hours per month.
Please write to email@example.com if you have an interest in becoming a monitor. If interested, we will contact you to arrange for a training session.
Class Assistant Program
Class Assistants work alongside our Instructors during computer classes assisting students with their hands-on experience. Knowledge of the class subject matter, a desire to help others, and a few hours of your time are all that is required. No fears, you will be teamed with an experienced CA and receive training annually.
Would you please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in becoming a CA? Training involves shadowing a current CA.
Are you the person all your friends ask when they have a problem with their computer, smartphone, tablet, or watch? Answer YES, then this is the volunteer opportunity for You! Help your Computer Club members with their devices while you LEARN and have FUN working with the Help Team.
Regularly, our Club offers help in either the classroom or the open room. This does not require a high level of knowledge, just the desire to be of service, the ability to Google a problem, or work with others on the Team to solve the issue. We welcome members for PC, Apple, Android, Google, and more…wherever you feel comfortable. Sign-up is done online to choose the dates and times when you are available. If something interferes with the sign-up, notify email@example.com to find a replacement. Helpers tell us that being part of service carries its own reward, knowing that you can be there for our members. This is true even if we cannot help; we are there to listen and make recommendations.

The Club President appoints a Facilities Chair. The Facilities Chair is responsible for selecting a diverse committee of 6 – 8 members representing knowledge of equipment, software, networking, etc. This committee meets monthly to review potential purchases of new equipment, replacement equipment, updated software; changes to the organization of the Computer Center; and other related items. In addition, the Chair sits on the Executive Board as a non-voting member and provides monthly reports, including recommendations made by the Facilities Committee.

Help plan the future of the Computer Club by volunteering for a committee or working with an officer to share your expertise as we continue to move our Club forward. The “Staff” meets monthly to have input on making decisions on purchasing, policy, and educational programming, to name a few. Club Officers are nominated annually, voted in at the November General Meeting, and begin their terms the following January. All members of the Computer Club are welcome to attend and become an active part of the Computer Club administration.
