In a partnership with Denver’s High Tech Early College, KidsTek added sophomore Jerod Burton as a technology intern this school year.
HTEC’s Executive Internship Program gives students the opportunity to gain valuable real world work experience while in high school. This year, Jerod will assist KidsTek instructor and HTEC faculty Julie Siwanowicz with the school’s technology needs including tracking the school’s inventory of netbooks, repairing computers and filing claims for faulty equipment.
Last year, Jerod graduated from KidsTek’s CompTIA A+ class, and this year he is continuing on in KidsTek’s Cisco Networking Discovery class taught by Siwanowicz. Jerod was KidsTek’s student of the month in January 2012, a big month for the teenager who spoke in front of his school alongside Mayor Michael Hancock. KidsTek is looking forward to helping Jerod develop as an outstanding intern.
