The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers to teach an hourlong basic computer skills class. The class will be offered one to two times per week in the evenings. Volunteers will determine when the class is offered, based on their availability. Most of the course's students will be from the organization's shelter, although anyone in the community is welcome to attend.
