  • Help


    I need help with customer service in our Local Computer Technical Service (ex. helping with printing, scanning, copying, etc.)
    We need some help , no matter if you know nothing about computers , the work will be helping clients , refilling ink cartidges, or if you know about repairing computers you can help us with that too. Occasionally we visit our clients in their homes with the volunteer, to make a diagnosis of the computer, these visits are brief nomally 30 minutes Volunteer help.

    We offer volunteer work running an internet, printing, and computer formating center as well as helping me keep the kids entertained during the day.

    I have also a new idea for a project where I could need your help. The idea is about to creat a community with the local youth and the volunteers for english practise, go out together, have a BBQ and so on.

    Don´t worry if you´re not a computer wiz. The work is not very complicated, and besides, we can train you. The majority of help is attending to customers (helping them print, cashiering, scanning, photocoping, etc.

    If you are looking for a place to practice your spanish and unwind from the long voyage, we would love to see you here in Arica.

    It is simple, easy and fun! Just ask us. We need Volunteers!
