Hello again Geeks!

 

August, September and October will be very active months for us at FreeGeek Chicago. We have a new class (Intro to your FreeGeek Computer) in the making for August, Software Freedom Day in September and FreeGeek's anniversary in October. There is still a lot to do and we need your help. So, if you are available on Friday's or Sunday's come down to FreeGeek and volunteer. Spend some time with us, learn and have fun!

Things at FreeGeek couldn't be better. Our Python class was a success, we got interviewed for The Idea Forge and we have met many new volunteers. It´s been really fantastic. We really want to keep this momentum going, so if you haven't volunteered with us, I encourage you to come down and spend the day. We promise you won´t regret it.

Orientation for Orientators

by Evelyn Lopez

With the completion of the first draft of my Orientation lesson plan, I am now going to help orientate new and past instructors to our new education plan.

To do this, I will be walking instructors through the Presentation and Lesson Plan created.

I will be holding "Orientation Orientation" this coming Friday (June 5th) and Sunday (June 7th) at 3:00pm. Possibly extending it to the following week as well.
