IT Coaching

Apparo’s new IT Coaching platform is launching soon! Stayed tuned for more information. 

IT Coaching website

IT Coaching is one-on-one (or two) technology support provided by skilled volunteers at no cost to nonprofits. Using our online portal, nonprofits post coaching requests and volunteers match themselves to coaching opportunities based on skill set and availability. 

Why should your nonprofit seek IT Coaching?

  • Increase organizational productivity
  • Boost employee ability and confidence
  • Improve efficiency and increase ability to serve your constituents
  • Provide no-cost technology coaching to your team

What are common coaching subjects?

Although you can request coaching on a range of IT subjects, our primary focus is on:

  • Excel
  • SharePoint
  • Word
  • Outlook
  • PowerPoint
  • Office 365 Tools and Navigation

How long are coaching sessions? Where do they take place?

Coaching takes place at the nonprofit's office, via one-hour monthly sessions over the course of up to four months. Sessions can be longer or more frequent if mutually agreed upon between the nonprofit and the volunteer. 

How many coaching sessions may I receive?

Some issues can be addressed in just one session, but for those that aren't, you can request multiple sessions. To receive additional coaching sessions with the same coach, you must agree on the time commitment/session quantity at the beginning of your training. If your coach is only able to provide one session, you may put in another request through the coaching request portal. 

Who are IT Coaches?   

IT Coaches come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have diverse employment experience. Your coach will have a skill set that matches your needs.

What IT Coaching Participants Are Saying ...

"I would like to say a huge "thank you" to Brendan Fitzgerald (Duke Energy ). First of all - he was extremely patient and professional. He also did an excellent job of explaining how things work! He taught me some quick tips on excel that make my monthly reporting much, much easier! I really felt like I could improve my monthly reporting skills after the excel training. Way to go Brendan! I appreciate your willingness to use your computer talents to help others! Thank you so much Brendan and Apparo!" -- Nonprofit Partner
