The cybervolunteers (Cibervoluntarios) are volunteers who help Cibervoluntarios Foundation (www.cibervoluntarios.org) to conduct its activities. They are volunteer staff who are passionate about new technologies, supportive, who offer part of their time and knowledge to teach other people how to use technology tools and applications in order to improve their lives. The Cibervoluntarios Foundation everyday helps the 1,500 cybervolunteers to carry out their task. How? We provide some examples below:
In short, the cybervolunteers help the Foundation to develop its everyday labor; it would not have been possible to have reached more than fifty thousand people through our existence without them. They are the leitmotiv of our organization and we are working for them to encourage the innovation and social change in society through the ICTs. In short, the Cybervolunteers are social change agents, aware of the power of new technologies to cause this change and empower people.
To do this we conform and adapt a variety of applications, tools and technological contents to the social, professional, educational and cultural needs of each of the groups for which technologies represent the distinctive feature that helps them to empower themselves; this is to say, to increase their capacities and opportunities within their environment. So our actions are highlighted by social innovation, by the use of new tools to solve old problems in a different way, because new technologies should not create more gaps, but to help eliminate the existing ones.
