Emmanuel Life Center computer lab needs volunteers

The brand new computer lab at The Emmanuel Life Center isn't lacking in technology - but it's lacking a few warm bodies.
"We are kind of in a limbo right now where we can't offer that many programs because we don't have any volunteers, and we have a hard time finding volunteers because we don't offer any programs," said Krystie Ketterling, neighborhood networks coordinator for Kiemle and Hagood, and one of the people who is trying to get the computer lab off the ground.
There are 12 computers at the Learning Center and the kids in the area use the center for home work prep and internet access.
"We  are struggling to get the adults in here," said Ketterling. "We are trying to help people move on in  their lives and reach some of their goals."
Volunteers are needed on weekdays from 3-5 p.m. and have to know a little bit about computers and pass a background check. The Emmanuel Life Center is located at 631 S. Richard Allen Court.
