Basic Computer Skills Training (Computer Literacy Classes) are based on 20-hours curriculum we created that focuses on people with zero & little experience with computers in order to learn how to use computers.

We support our mentors with a training based 20-hours curriculum we created that focuses on people with zero & little experience with computers in order to learn how to use computers. The training program is supporting organisations working with vulnerable groups in different locations of Athens.

What's the CLC all about?

In Social Hackers Academy we believe that tech education should be free for all. We sometimes forget that loads of people don’t understand the basics of how a computer works. That keeps them from getting a job and in the near future they won’t be able to go to the bank or even pay for their groceries at the Super Market.

That’s where SHA steps in and is bridging the gap between the people who need to learn basic computer skills and the volunteers who wants to teach them.

Do I need to be a teacher to teach the CLC Curriculum?

No. Certainly not. We will give you all the necessary information to be able to deliver this course to vulnerable groups

What's the language you use during the classes?

At this time our focus is on educating refugees to the basic principles of computers. English is the language you use to teach. Of course there will be some minor language barriers as refugees don’t speak perfect English most of the time, but a little bit of positive attitude and Google translate you’ll overcome the challenge.

Do I have to be Computer Genius?

It’s a certain NO once again. If you know how to use Google Docs and turn a computer on then you have enough knowledge to run the class. Don’t forget that we’re here to support you in the delivering the class.

How much time do I need to invest?

This is totally up to you. You can devote 20 hours and run a whole program yourself or assist a fellow volunteer for 2 hours every month. The choice is up to you and your schedule. You provide us with your time availability and we match you with an NGO that needs your services that fits your schedule.
