Computers for Schools Yukon hasn’t seen momentum like this in a long time. In October we lucked out and had some really great technicians apply for the Technical Work Experience Program. Here in March 2015 when it came time to hiring some more T.W.E.P. Technicians, we got even more great applications in, so the work is spreading and quality talent is wanting in to this program!
This year, unlike in the past, CFSY registered and set up booths at the Spring Job and Volunteer Fair, as well as the Lions Trade Show. Technically at the Trade Show we shared a booth with Raven Recycling, but the point is that we were there, getting the name out there. The experience was great because so many people had no idea that we were open and that they could recycle their used computers by dropping them off at the Raven Recycling Society depot for $5 per monitor, laptop, or desktop (no CRT monitors unfortunately). At the Job and Volunteer fair we were able to share with a lot of interested people that volunteering here at CFSY means that a volunteer gets lots of great training and expansion of computer skills as they in turn help us.
As always, let us know if you would like any more information on how we operate and how we might be able to help you out in your school or educational organization.
