Volunteer 

Volunteers are a valued part of our team here at the Keeping Digital Foundation and we work hard to ensure that our volunteers have a rewarding experience. 
 
As a volunteer, you will receive an induction, training and ongoing support appropriate for your role. From mentors and support teams to fundraising and administration we really do rely on volunteers to help deliver our huge range of services. 
 
You can get in touch with our volunteering team by emailing volunteering@keepingdigital.org.uk 
New opportunities come up regularly, so if the volunteer roles which are currently advertised are not suitable do keep checking the website for a role to suit your skills and interests. 

Selby CoderDojo – Mentors 

Volunteers who provide support, guidance, and encouragement young people so they can complete their projects and develop their skills. Many mentors do not have technical skills, but that doesn’t stop them from having a huge impact on the young people at our Dojos. Anyone who is passionate about technology and shares the CoderDojo spirit can be a mentor! The role of a mentor is not the same as that of a teacher or lecturer. Mentors help young people work through problems and encourage their efforts rather than directly delivering solutions. 
 
A DBS check is required for all CoderDojo roles – this will be completed once an application is accepted. 
It is a requirement to be 16+ to apply for this volunteering opportunity 

Keeping Digital Foundation – Digital Inclusivity Support Team 

The Keeping Digital Foundation are now providing digital inclusion support services, which aims to be a network that supports the residents of York to get online. We’re looking for a team of volunteers to help us provide support to local residents and other local charities, as we come together to help everyone gain skills to access vital online support and services. 
 
We’ll be providing online support through our website which will have guides and tips to getting online. Our online volunteers will be given a Digital City email address where they can answer any questions that are sent to them from local residents. This could expand to create a buddy system where volunteers are paired up with local residents to provide support. 
 
Our volunteers will help us provide our important cafe service. The Keeping Digital Foundation will be hosting cafes at various libraries and community spaces across the city, where residents can drop by to ask questions, or get help setting up online devices such as laptops and phones. 
Our network is vital in helping the residents of York get online. With many services and support information moving online, our network will be vital in helping people to get online. Our volunteer network will also work with the many local charities across the city as we partner to help as many residents as possible. 
 
All volunteers must live in the city of York or surrounding areas. You do not need to be an expert in IT as we provide helpful guides, but we do ask that you have basic IT knowledge (can you operate a PC/Laptop, install updates, use basic software?). 
 
It is a requirement to be 16+ to apply for this volunteering opportunity.
