    Do you have a passion to share your computer knowledge and basic skills with others? If so, consider volunteering in the Computer Lab at Metro North Adult Basic Education. Under the direction of trained staff at our Columbia Heights location, you will guide English Language Learners through basic skills to use a computer, as well as Internet and email applications. In most instances, it is important to be comfortable with using a printer as well as conducting searches on the Internet.
