|Work with donated computers to refurbish them for the homes of people with physical disabilities. In partnership with the program coordinator, the Computer Technicians troubleshoot computer systems that aren’t working, build computers from parts, and load them with an appropriate operating system and hardware.
|Neil Squire Society’s Makers Making Change offers a platform for makers (engineers, hobbyists, students, corporations, etc.) to volunteer their time to make an access solution from our projects library. People with disabilities, their family members, or disability professionals can request a project that they feel will help address a person’s barriers.
To volunteer as a maker, please visit Makers Making Change and sign up as a maker to connect with people with disabilities in your community.
