Tech-savvy youth needed

Tech-savvy youth are sought for a new West Coast pilot program to build bridges between generations and help everyone access information. The program is seeking young people who know their way around a smart phone and/or tablet, who like to meet new people, share their knowledge and have fun.

"We have some funding for a pilot program where youth, ages 16 – 20, are needed to give some of us ‘tech newbies’ some tips. Anything from setting up email/facebook accounts, how to get apps on your phone, how to turn your notifications off or on (yes, we’re that desperate!) to setting up contact lists," said Sally Mole. A minimum three hour commitment (spread over 2 separate events in June) is needed.

"We’ll feed you, and we’ll pay you the best hourly rate you’ll get this summer," said Mole. Email sallymole@live.ca or text 250-266-0344 with name and age.
