The Katherine Rotary Club are searching for expressions of interest for a course program addressing low technological literacy among a broad range of demographics.
The proposed courses would be user-driven, with the Rotary responding to the needs of participants to organise courses week-by-week.
Katherine Rotary Club Secretary Chris Dixon says there's a host of benefits from job prospects to social connectivity the club hopes to help residents harness.
"Of course the seniors tend to struggle a bit but what we've seen is even young people's skills for various useful tasks are quite low," he said.
"Processes such as knowing how to apply an electronic signature are simple but really very helpful for getting things done.
"I've shown seniors how to use zoom and the benefits for them in keeping in touch with relatives are profound.
"It's not difficult, but they simply need somebody there to respond to their questions and show them how to do it," Mr Dixon said.
Having sought and received positive feedback from both social service providers and rotary members in the town, the Rotary Club are now seeking expressions of interest by hard copy or through the online form.
The club will also be holding a digital mentor session with Ursula Lyons of SWADENT on 26 July, and on 27 July will be at the Rotary Park to answer any questions people may have.
The Rotary Club will provide teachers, internet and space but participants must bring their own laptop, phone or tablet for use on the day.
