A team of tech-savvy youth from Youngster.co was at the Growers Market in the City Centre today to offer FREE tech help to anyone needing assistance with the Service NSW App to scan Covid QR code check-ins or download their Dine & Discover vouchers.
“I love the idea of Youngster.co – young people gaining life skills and employment by helping older people who are having to learn a lot of very new tech skills to help them navigate our modern world,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor Councillor Denise Knight.
“It will also benefit City Centre businesses, and the Growers Market producers, who – like businesses all over Coffs – are having to follow all the Covid check-in requirements that are now in place to help us all stay safe during this pandemic.”
Under the NSW Government COVID-19 regulations, QR code check-ins are mandatory across all retail. The NSW Government’s Dine & Discover Vouchers are also still available until the end of August 2021.
To help local businesses, Council has engaged the team at Youngster.Co to offer free guidance and support to help the community download the Service NSW App to their phones, learn how to scan QR codes and download their Dine & Discover vouchers.
Tony Rothacker, founder of Youngster.co, said: “This is a great opportunity for our youngsters to give back to the retail business community and show the value of their technology skills. Seniors gain confidence using the Service NSW App and by helping visitors with their QR code issues we make it easier to enter shops and improve visitors’ experience. A great way for our youngsters to learn customer service and communication skills.”
