Benefits of Volunteering with CCN
Volunteers are the key to ongoing well-being of Chebucto Community Net
(CCN) and to the provision of service in such an organizational structure.
Without this invaluable resource, CCN would be forced to engage large
numbers of paid staff.
There are, of course, considerable potential benefits to the volunteer.
You will be working to make the ``electronic highway'' accessible to all.
By volunteering, you get to work with and learn a great deal from experts
in the field.
There are many personal benefits resulting from the new skills you will
acquire, even enhancing your employment opportunities. You will be
advising, training, supporting and guiding new users of CCN. You will
also develop relationships with people who share your interests.
Other benefits include:
- priority access to Chebucto training courses
- knowledge gained by making a contribution to the development of
community networking software and documentation that is used worldwide
- community recognition from helping to put Nova Scotia on the global
information technology map
- opportunities to share your expertise, experience and knowledge
with interested groups and individuals on Chebucto Community Net and with
other communities in this province and around the world
