Mentoring and Problem Solving


Application to become a MAGIC mentor

MAGIC members occasionally ask who to turn to on the island when their Macs appear to misbehave or when they need some training or hand holding. Here are some MAGIC members who might be able to help out.

Mentors are willing to meet with you at a social center such as a coffee shop with WiFi or make house calls where required. Donations to MAGIC for services are not required but will be gratefully received - they are tax deductible where the law allows.
