High school years are critical for student success and Tech Exchange takes pride in involving Oakland youth in our organization. We provide opportunities for youth who are interested in careers in tech. Out-of-classroom experiences can provide a much needed bridge of support for engaging and guiding students towards sustainable career pathways. We are dedicated to ensuring Oakland youth have pathways to compete in the technology industry and are thankful to partners investing in Tech Exchange to support our youth.
Tech Exchange had the opportunity to host 30 Oakland International High School students at the refurnishing warehouse. Students engaged in hands-on service learning experience, while assisting Tech Exchange technicians. Students performed initial laptop tests, which are essential to the initial phase of the refurbishing process. We look forward to working with more of these students in the future, as they continue to prepare for an evolving workplace.
