Be Connected Capacity Building
As we are now at the halfway point of our current Be Connected Capacity Building project our final four Digital Mentor training dates have been set during February and March 2024.
The Indian Ocean Group Training Association, which has been working on their Be Connected projects since 2020, has requested Natika’s help to bolster the digital lives of their senior community members. Tik is off to provide (at their request) refresher sessions for their existing Digital Mentors, and to also work with their Mentors and Seniors and train some new Digital Mentors face to face at the Community Resource Centre (CRC) on Cocos and Christmas Islands in mid February.
During March we will be holding two face-to-face sessions in Perth and Harvey. The Perth session is being hosted with partners, Centre for Accessibility Australia. This collaboration is a testament to our ongoing commitment to creating inclusive digital landscapes. Additionally, our previous partnership with AMaGA and Harvey History Online in Harvey continues to bolster our network of support.
As we approach the completion of our grant outcomes for this round, we’re just 24 Digital Mentors shy of the finish line. With that goal in sight, we’re hosting another session (across two mornings vai Zoom) before Easter, open to all who wish to access this free, full day of Be Connected Digital Mentor Training.
For more details and to register for a spot in the training, please check our SWADE section on our website. (https://ascca.org.au/training/swade/)
Together, let’s build a future where every senior can confidently click, swipe, and explore the digital universe. Your knowledge and enthusiasm are the keys to unlocking a world of possibilities for our seniors.
