Mentors needed for peninsula hub
Words by Nick Crockford

Brisbane Seniors Online (BSOL) needs more volunteer computer mentors to meet demand in the Redcliffe and Moreton Bay Region.

Under a new coverage area for the Peninsula hub, BSOL has expanded into North Lakes and neighbouring areas.

New learners have joined and more are welcome – but there is now a need to provide tutoring to these new learners.

Brisbane Seniors Online provides home training on computers and the internet for seniors and over 50s using patient voluntary unpaid mentors.

One-on-one training

Ideally mentors need to be around the same age as their learners and be able to communicate well with seniors and over 50s. 

The average age of BSOL learners is 74.

Training is on a one-on-one basis on the learner's own device and at a pace that suits them. Learners are taught about what they want to know or need to know.

Learners can be taught on a number of devices including Windows, Apple and Android as well as smart phones.

If you would like to volunteer as a mentor for BSOL contact 3393 2225 or see or
