Volunteer Programs and Opportunities

First Fridays

Through a partnership with the UCLA Emeriti/Retirees Relations Center, BruinTech members can participate in an open clinic to assist Emeriti/Retirees with technology problems. Our volunteer technologists sit with emeriti and retiree clients to help them with questions regarding their electronic devices and other applications, including cell phones, digital cameras, email attachments, message retrieval, MS Office applications, and much more. Volunteers can come for as much time as they are able to and will get paired up with a client based on their skillset. We do not provide any “repair” work for the clients, so volunteers do not need to be from a very technical background or know how to fix computers. Our goal is to help bring the emeriti and retiree population into the digital age by allowing them feel comfortable with the technology.

 

BruinTech Events and Conferences

BruinTech offers many events and conferences throughout the year and we are always looking for energetic volunteers to help with planning and execution to make these events as amazing as possible for our community. Keep an eye out for volunteer calls from the Executive Board and help bring out events to life!

 

Technology Round Table

An event aimed at enhancing IT literacy and innovation among UCLA Faculty, through tech speed-dating, faculty are introduced to productivity tools in 10-minute intervals that will help save them hours in their teaching and research. Volunteers will have 10 minutes to explain what a particular productivity tool can do, give a brief demo, and show how to get started. Each tool can be demonstrated up to 6 times at each event, depending on the length of the event. Sample tools that have been presented in the past are: Skype, Google Docs, Dropbox, Prezi, Evernote, Doodle, and more!
