Hire or Provide Internship
I love this concept…maybe some organizations on this list might consider taking on one or more of these young people!
Techie Youth teaches technology career-skills to older-teens in foster care (kids without parents,) youth facing homelessness & other at-risk youth. The teens & young-adults who have graduated the program have learned a broad range of tech skills, and are in great need of an opportunity to prove their value to an organization and become computer-sector professionals who are financially self-sufficient, and who will not need welfare/social-services.
Can you, or someone you know, provide an internship or entry-level job to a Techie Youth graduate, in full-time or part-time role? If so, please email Barbara -at- TechieYouth.org
– Either entry-level jobs or paid-internships okay!
– Either full-time or part-time okay!
– Any location in NYC or Long Island (including Suffolk County)
– Roles must be in an office, IT “field-work” or other professional environment (not retail or home-based.)
– Roles must be focused on computers, IT or technology (in any capacity.) Internships can include labor-tasks as a minority focus, but the primary role must be tech oriented.
