About the program
The re-gifting program has been suspended until further notice. This is due to changes in the licensing agreement with Microsoft.
Please note: Non-profit organizations are still able to obtain computers for their clients, however, there is a charge of minimum $89.00 plus applicable taxes.
reBOOT Peterborough has been proud to take part in the highschool co-op program for more than 5 years. Every semester we have up to 4 (and at times more) students working at our East City shop.
We accept students from any school in the Peterborough area. The lower age limit is 14.
Currently we offer two positions:
- Computer knowledge, hardware as well as software, is definitely an asset in this position. You will learn to build a computer from parts and to refurbish both laptop and desktop systems.
- While the need for in-depth computer knowledge is not as great for this position, it is certainly an asset to know your way around a computer.
Customer service and organizational skills are very important too.
If you want know more about the co-op positions, feel free to call or e-mail us. To enrol you have to contact your local co-op teacher.
reBOOT currently takes in volunteers from students who need community service hours (high school) or specific work experience (e.g. computer engineering at the college level). Please contact us directly to set up an interview. Please note that we may not have room for volunteers every week, this is especially true for March Break which is very popular for high school students.
Individuals who wish to obtain work experience in the computer field, may apply for a volunteer position with reBOOT Peterborough. The process is pretty much like applying for an actual job: A resume and an interview is required. Only individuals with acceptable computer knowledge will be accepted. All applicants must pass an in-shop safety assessment. Applicants aged 18 and over must also provide a satisfactory police check (vulnerable groups).
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you would like to volunteer with reBOOT, feel free to contact us. We accept applications for both technical and non-technical work. The application process is the same as for the ‘Volunteer program (work experience)’ above.
