[NEWS] Residents trained for tech apprenticeships

 

From: The Temple News

The university’s Computer Recycling Center is partnering with the Philadelphia-based homelessness nonprofit Project HOME to offer community residents a paid technology apprenticeship at Temple.

Together, the Computer Recycling Center and Project HOME, which combats issues of poverty and homelessness, provided participants with 10 weeks of training in technology courses in the fall before they began a nine-week rotating apprenticeship program.

During the apprenticeship, which began on Jan. 29, nine residents work at the Computer Recycling Center, the Computer Services help desk in the TECH Center and in computer labs on campus. They will rotate through these different departments every three weeks.
