What is a Digital Champion?
Digital Champions are staff and volunteers from nonprofit and public sector organizations who help people one-on-one to be online.
GEO Digital Champions participate in a 2-hour training session led by GEO Nova Scotia Digital Inclusion Facilitators and receive effective tools, tips, and techniques to support someone who needs help to use the Internet safely and confidently.
Digital Champions help people one-on-one to do things online like:
- setting up their new devices
- using video calls
- accessing online learning opportunities
- explaining how to stay safe online
