This round of the Capacity Building grant is an opportunity for Network Partners to implement a train-the-trainer program to support and develop new digital mentors in their community.
This round has 25 places available for organisations to start their 12 month program in September 2021. Each Capacity Builder will be required to train and support 100 Digital Mentors (50 in outer regional, remote and very remote areas).
Capacity Builders are ambassadors for Good Things Foundation and the Be Connected Network. They work with Good Things Foundation to support the Be Connected program, helping them to strengthen the Network and support community organisations to meet the needs of older Australians seeking to improve their digital skills.
