Phoenix Youth R.I.S.E. Summer Employment Program
Phoenix Youth R.I.S.E. (Reach and Invest in Summer Employment) actively recruits local businesses, non-profits, philanthropic and government agencies to create internship opportunities for Phoenix youth in the summer. Business leaders can provide opportunities for youth ages 16 to 24 to get "real-world" work experience while learning aspects of business and providing pathways to future employment. Businesses will benefit from untapped talent at no cost to their budget. The program offers pathways to future employment for the interns and businesses.
SanTrac participates in the Phoenix Youth R.I.S.E. summer employment program. With this program we help bring valuable insight into future career opportunities for the youth along with helping them create a professional network.
Arizona students recycling used technology, otherwise known as AZ strut, started in 1997 by Intel and Motorola. They started partnering with schools and having some of their computer repair programs assist in the refurbishing efforts. AZ Strut officially became a 501c3 with the state of Arizona and started providing A+ certification training to the teachers and these programs. In 2000 we became official with the IRS and we also started our computer recycle day on Earth Day and have done one every year since. As of 2017, they have donated over 56,000 computers to schools and nonprofits. They also supported stem programs with computer hardware, and we continue to recycle all of the e-waste responsibly.
SanTrac Technologies has donated old desktops, servers, cell phones, office phones, and computer hardware. The equipment is used to assist in learning programs or is properly recycled.
Arizona Center for Youth Resources is the center for workforce development’s and their primary focus is to help create a highly qualified and well-educated emerging workforce. ACYR provides workforce development services to youth who are economically disadvantaged and demonstrate one or more significant barriers to employment and/or higher education, with a special component that provides services to youth involved in the juvenile justice system.
SanTrac participates in the Workforce Development Program for ACYR and together we can provide hands on training internships for at risk youths between the ages of 16-24. We do so by developing a positive “can do” attitude around arriving on time, being dependable, dressing appropriately, and reporting for work.
Camp Colley Wireless Network
Camp Colley effectively engages young boys and girls between the ages of 9-17 in an immersive 4-day outdoor residential camp. The program provides nature-based outdoor field lessons, leadership and recreational adventure to build self-confidence, resilience, and healthy relationships. All of which provide necessary social supports for youth to transition more successfully into adulthood.
SanTrac installed a wireless network at Camp Colley. This enabled the City of Phoenix and Tonto National Forest staff efficient communication while administrating camp activities. This project was in partnership with Rosendin Electric. Rosendin Electric provides and maintains solar power equipment at the camp.
