Mission: Technology services corps is a non-profit organization based in the seattle area that engages youth in technology-oriented service projects, including working in teams to refurbish used computers, to install them in underserved areas around the world, and to teach the recipients in the use and maintenance of the computers. Tsc promotes leadership and skill development, community service, and global perspectives in youth who are engaged in the organization. It also promotes access to technology for communities around the world that lack such access due to limited resources. The founders of the organization who serve on the governing and youth advisory boards have a wealth of experience in leading and supporting worldwide technology services trips.
Programs: During 2014 technology services corps made trips to peru, an giang province, vietnam and antigua, guatemala. These service trips cultivate student leadership and promote technology-oriented service work in underserved areas. We assure that future generations of students have opportunities to develop technology and leadership skills; consider career opportunities in technology, international relations, and community service; learn how to give of themselves and help diminish the 'digital divide'; promote environmental stewardship by learning how to recycle old computers; and promote cultural exchange and global change friendships. We help provide access to educational and vocational opportunities for communities that may have few other options. Students plan and lead trips, take computers to under-served areas, set up computer labs, and teach partners in the host community how to use and maintain the computers and labs.
