Current Volunteer Opportunities

Digital Mentor Volunteers Wanted

The City of Bayswater is seeking volunteers for its popular Digital Mentor program.

As a digital mentor, volunteers will work one on one and in small group settings assisting older adults (50+ years) with technology and online basics, such as how to download an app, completing online forms, being safe online and more. 

If you have intermediate computer skills, enjoying working with people, and can commit one to three hours a week helping older people navigate the online world, then we would like to hear from you.

This is a great opportunity to gain practical experience and make a positive difference in your community.  Applicants must be over 18 years of age to volunteer and undertake a police check, paid for by the City.
