Volunteers are an integral part of Byte Back’s work, bringing skills and dedication that add to our capacity to serve. Most of our instructors are volunteers. Some are doing a service year, experienced office workers, IT professionals, or Byte Back graduates who want to give back.

We’re committed to offering a meaningful experience for volunteers. This includes training, professional development opportunities, and events.

Whether you can volunteer for just a couple hours or full time, you will be a highly valued member of our team and feel the rewards of giving back.

We’re currently recruiting volunteers for the following positions:

One-Time or Short-Term Volunteers

Career Assistants – Volunteer once or regularly to help Byte Back students updating their resumes and cover letters, interviewing, networking, and other skills.

Workshop Presenters – Share your expertise with students during a one- or two-hour career workshop.


Tutors – Help students a few hours per month, one-on-one or in small groups, with beginner computer and software processes like attaching a document to an email or learning how to cut and paste.


Success Coaches/Mentors – As a professional, you have a wealth of experience to share. Impact a certification student’s career by mentoring in-person or remotely for one to two hours per month for four months. Click for more information on mentoring.

Board Members – Being a board member is a rewarding leadership experience. Serve on a committee that speaks to your experience or interest. Terms last two years.

Instructors – Byte Back relies on volunteer instructors to teach beginner or intermediate digital literacy classes. We provide the training and curriculum for day and evening classes. Courses are usually two hours long, twice a week, for six weeks.
