The Square Tech Teen Program is a paid internship that recruits High School students between ages of 14 - 19 while providing training in technology and business focused workshops.

 

 

This tech-based youth program engineers a foundation of learning and developing skills through a series of technology and business based training workshops. Youth then apply their learned IT training to refurbish computers, which are then available for suggested donation. This effectively increases affordable access to technology to some of Boston’s most unconnected communities.

Square Tech is also offering Volunteer internships. Did you know that your volunteer experience looks great on college and scholarship applications, but did you know that it can also help you land a job? Square tech is offering volunteer spring internships for students through technology and business based workshops. To learn more or apply for a volunteer internship read information below.

Held in one of CSTO’s spaces, our young people are learning skills to become successful in the technology field while building lasting friendships with their peers and adults.​ These young people are learning the necessary skills to become successful, thriving members of society.
