Many of our volunteers:
Ready to volunteer?
Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age. Volunteers 15-17 years of age that wish to work independently are required to have their parent or legal guardian sign our youth permission form prior to performing any volunteer service. Free I.T. Athens does not offer childcare and unattended children are not allowed on the premises.
All volunteers must attend our new volunteer orientation session. The session is conducted at our 2092 Prince Avenue offices and is designed to orient new volunteers with our operations, organizational policy and expectations. For the next available orientation, please see our calendar.
To stay up to date on Free I.T.Athens' volunteer opportunities, please join our volunteer group. The group is a low traffic e-mail list that will keep you notified of our activities and events.
Volunteers may receive a single core desktop after 12 hours of service, as well as a dual core desktop or a laptop after 30 hours of service. If you are working toward a laptop please let a volunteer know before you complete your hours.
After 20 hours of volunteer work volunteers earn the option of being officially recognized as a staff member of Free I.T. Athens. Members are volunteers who regularly visit open hours, can work independently, and can lead others in at least one area we work in (e.g. refurbishing, support, training). Each Member also takes on a share of the projects and administrative work that occurs outside of our regular office hours. Members meet once a year to elect the board of directors.
Please email email@example.com or call 706-621-6157 if you have any questions about the volunteer program. If you would like to learn more about volunteer descriptions, policies and programs, please view (PDF) our volunteer manual.
