19% of Pennsylvanians don't have a laptop or desktop computer at home. Help us change that.

When?

Computer Reach hosts in-person volunteer days every Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. If you would like to volunteer sometime between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., we can accommodate that too.

See our volunteer schedule.

Where?

All volunteers report to the Computer Reach Warehouse in Wilkinsburg. Limited onsite parking is available.

What will you do?

When you volunteer at Computer Reach, you learn how to:

  • evaluate recently donated computers, 

  • refurbish computers that are repairable and responsibly recycle any that are not,

  • test monitors, keyboards, and mice, and

  • pack up computer systems for shipment to individuals in need.

No experience needed.

  • We teach you all of the skills you need to volunteer with us and provide all tools/equipment. 

  • We accept volunteers ages 10+. Children under the age of 18 must have an adult with them. 

  • Technical and non-technical activities are available. There is something for everyone!
