What

Come work as an intern at Techie Youth, a non-profit charity of NYC that helps foster-kids (children who have been removed from abusive/neglectful parents/homes) who are approaching the age-of-emancipation (18-21) and at-risk youth. We train them in computer-technology and then help them begin a career in the IT-sector. Statistically, without Techie Youth, most of these kids will become homeless or incarcerated - in NYC 80% of homeless people were previously in foster-care. We operate in collaboration with the City of NY and several tech-companies including Microsoft.

Duties of your role as Tech-Focused Teacher's Aide include:
- helping/guiding students in the Techie Youth classroom as needed (under the guidance of our experienced teaching-staff)
- being an additional set-of-eyes in the classroom to ensure that ALL students remain engaged throughout the class time
- answering student questions

Perks:
- Intense hands-on experience working in a very-large classroom of underprivileged youth, over a short 6-week summer semester.
- Performing a huge LIFE-SAVING good deed for the kids in our program
- As a respected 501(c)3 registered charity of NYC, we will accommodate all (legitimately-earned) requests for you to gain school credit, letters of recommendation, positive employment referrals, etc.
- You will likely learn new tech-skills too, as our curriculum is highly-accelerated to provide full A-to-Z technology career-training
- Upon completion of the internship, you will have the option to be strongly-considered for future paid teaching role openings at Techie Youth

  • This role requires commitment to attend our full NYC-based 6-week-semester running 25-hours/week, Mon-Fri during July-August. You may select from two shifts, 8am-1pm or 1pm to 6pm, or choose to work both shifts (this would be a huge perk for us, but is not a requirement for being selected as an intern.)
REQUIRED:
  • REQUIRED: must have a core understanding of IT and computer-technology hands-on; you can be self-taught, a comp-sci major or just someone with a passion/knack for tech.
  • REQUIRED: coherent verbal demeanor AND good patience to guide young-adults
  • REQUIRED: dedication and commitment to this role - our team is very passionate about this initiative and we want to ensure all other participants are as well.
