WIT : Tech Squad
with Mayra Ochoa & Franco Sanchez
Join Tech Squad, a team that is dedicated to advancing Digital NEST’s mission of providing access to technology for all and helping you break into tech, and careers in tech. Members in Tech Squad learn customer service skills, as well as essential project management and technical skills, to help meet all of our members and staff needs around technology. This summer, Tech Squad will be teaming up with the organization Artists Ink, and lead a collaborative project that will increase internet access to families in Salinas. We will also design and share education resources in digital literacy, and develop a system that will provide ongoing support to struggling families. Tech Squad members will engage in the entire project process, from the initial brainstorming discussions to the final deliverables of our work. Join us and be part of the efforts to improve access to technology in our local communities!
