Teach Basic Computing Classes
Beginning in Fall 2021, TAGNW will provide basic computing classes in collaboration with Bellingham Public Library pending COVID limitations and in-person events at the library restarting. We would love for you to volunteer! You should be: (1) an advanced computer user, (2) familiar with Ubuntu Linux, and (3) interested to teach people basic computing skills. Teaching materials will be provided. Our goal is to teach the skills and tools necessary to allow for self-learning, and utilize the many support resources available, including the TAGNW Community Hub (Discord).
