Is This the Right Fit for Me?
You are proficient in basic computer programs, internet usage, and social media. You don’t need to know everything about everything (that’s what the online module is for!), but you can help facilitate students’ learning by hearing their questions well and figuring out the answer together. You don’t have to have teaching experience, but you have a knack for meeting someone where they are at and explaining things in a way they’ll understand. You can work with people with different backgrounds and challenges from yours.
Comprenew’s mission is to protect people, businesses, and the environment from the threat of improperly disposed electronic devices through best practice technology data management, asset recovery and recycling services, while fostering a heightened sense of caring for the environment, skill development and job readiness through our volunteer, work experience, and computer literacy programs.

What to Expect
Reach out to Erin to schedule an in-person interview at Comprenew’s offices. You’ll get the chance to review the class syllabus for the ten classes. She will answer any questions you have about Comprenew, the classes, and the curriculum. Using your availability and Comprenew’s needs, you’ll be placed in a partner organization hosting the classes and begin teaching. You can choose at the end of five weeks if/when you’re like to facilitate another class. If you need an accessible classroom, let her know and she’ll make sure you’re matched with a class location that will work for you.
