Seniors looking for volunteer opportunities and those with computer skills to share are needed by the Jewish Council for the Aging to teach computer classes.

Classes are designed to help seniors refresh or advance computer skills and learn to use social media. Courses offered are beginner and intermediate Windows 7, Microsoft Excel, creating photo books and videos, iPad and more. They are held in Rockville, Gaithersburg and Northern Virginia.

Rockville classes are held at the council’s Bronfman Center, 12320 Parklawn Drive, and the Gaithersburg classes are offered at Asbury Methodist Village, 409 Russell Ave.

The council also is seeking volunteers for its Career Gateway program, which helps people 50 and older enter or return to the workforce. Mentors are needed to help graduates prepare for interviews and offer suggestions. Resume reviewers who can spend two to three hours in a classroom once a month editing resumes also are needed.

Those interested in being mentors or resume reviewers may call Ellen Greenberg at 301-255-4215.
