Wanted: A few good instructors

The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center needs volunteers to teach computer and other classes.

A few weeks ago, we mentioned the “Cyber-Senior” movie, a documentary about teenagers who teach seniors how to use the Internet, and told how it started a movement of similar programs.

At the ACC, we have wonderful volunteers teaching computer classes to participants 18 and older, but we are in need of more volunteers willing to teach a variety of computer operating systems and software.

For example, we offer classes in social networking, such as Facebook and Twitter, and selling/purchasing programs such as Craigslist and Ebay. We offer PC, MAC, Windows 8 and Microsoft Office classes, and need volunteers who are comfortable teaching any of these, too.

And we are always looking for new classes to offer. How about an iProduct class, teaching others to use those popular iPhones and iPads? Maybe you are great at iTunes and would like to teach others the ins and outs of downloading music.

Are you skilled at using a Droid smartphone or a Surface tablet? We could possibly develop a class for whatever you are skilled to teach. Join the movement and join our volunteer team to teach adults how to use computers, software and programs. Call the center if you are interested and would like more information.

Call 503-635-3758 to register for classes and events or to make lunch reservations. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.

Here are some of the activities on tap at LOACC in the coming week:

You could be a poet and not even know it. Come and register for the “Master the Art of Poetry” class and learn the fundamentals of constructing poetry.

It is a fun and interactive environment, held every Friday starting on June 20; members $27, all others $41.
