YVSC is looking for volunteer coaches to help the community fix their broken stuff at a U-Fix-It Clinic on April 1. At a U-Fix-It event, people can bring all sorts of broken appliances, lamps and toys and learn hands-on repair skills–extending the life of their “stuff” and keeping resources out of the landfill.
As a coach, your role is to encourage participants to explore their broken stuff and have fun. Enthusiasm and patience are more important than extensive repair expertise, but knowledge of electrical circuits is a plus. Coaches all help each other with their collective knowledge and puzzle solving abilities. And if a few can trace a circuit with a multi-meter, that will be helpful, too.
