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.

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.
