New - 'On Target - Learning to Shop Online' - Short Course
President's Report to AGM - 2021
April marked the commencement of the U3A Benalla’s involvement in Wesfarmers Digital Inclusion Partnership Program, a response to the closure of the Target Store in Benalla on Saturday April 10. The program we are offering ‘On Target--Learning to Shop Online’, commenced with an orientation session in late April for members of the Benalla community keen to undertake the transition to online shopping. Participants will also be encouraged to learn other vital digital skills required by the modern world, including online Government services, online banking, paying bills online and safe internet usage. For members of the community who do not have a smart phone which will support online shopping, the pilot program will provide participants with one. Although the program has commenced any member of the Benalla community who would like to participate can ring me on 0412 263 071 to enrol.
