Members Helping Members with Technology

For this month’s TimeBank Tales, we held our first ever “Member-to-Member” Technology Exchange!

How it worked: we paired up TimeBank members in need of technology assistance with a tech-saavy member for a one hour lesson with linkAges TimeBank partner, the Mountain View Senior Center.

From setting up a Facebook account to learning the in’s and out’s of using an iPhone, TimeBank members got these questions and more answered by others in the TimeBank community. There was even a photo booth for members to take their profile photo and upload it to the their TimeBank account!
