The DeForest Area School District and it’s partners DeForest Area Community and Senior Center and RSVP of Dane County are seeking volunteers ages 55+ to participate in an e-mail pen-pal program called Computer Buddies beginning in January, 2011.
Computer Buddies fosters positive relationships between the generations and helps enhance children’s literacy skills. If you would enjoy exchanging e-mails with a 3rd or 4th grade student, can spare 20 -30 minutes every other week, and attend a gathering at the end of the school year to meet your young buddy, this program is for you!
All volunteers must complete an application, submit to a background investigation and attend a quick orientation for the program. If you are interested, please contact Jan Hoffman at the DeForest Area Community and Senior Center, 846- 9496 or Nancy Madden at RSVP of Dane County, 661-4271 for more information.
