Volunteer News

Computadoras Pro Jovenes (CPJ) is seeking volunteers to check donated computers in and out, and to load software onto them. In addition, volunteers are needed to represent CPJ to groups in SMA. CPJ is also seeking volunteers to recruit and train volunteers. Finally, CPJ is seeking volunteers to help with fundraising, primarily in the US. Volunteers do not need advanced computer skills, only the ability to determine whether a computer is working and to load software. Volunteer hours are flexible. Spanish is not necessary with the exception of volunteers who go to the field to check computers in the campo. Volunteers need to arrange for transportation when needed, but some work can be done from home. For more information, contact cpjcomputers@gmail.com.
