Laptop Upcycle holds intern sessions on Tuesdays and Sundays from 3-5pm. We clear off all data on donated laptops, install new software, fix any problems and then clean and test the laptops in these sessions. You can expect a variety of activities around these topics. You may be asked to work solo or in groups.
All vaccinated people are welcome to sign up for a session. We limit attendance to the first 11 people who want to attend a session in order to maintain reasonable social distance to the extent possible. We have increased our airflow and organized our work space to minimize face-to-face interactions to limit possible infections. Masks are optional. We provide hand sanitizer and nitrile gloves for anyone who wants to use them.
Once you are approved as an intern, you just use this form to sign up and show up. You'll get an email confirmation for each session you sign up for.
Before you are approved as an intern and your FIRST session you must also complete 2 release forms. Here are links to the 2 forms: Laptop Upcycle Covid-19 release form and the 2020 Laptop Upcycle Media Release form. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QE6Ihs-k010hpmLx_tSYsOeIkkF6Sv01/view?usp=sharinghttps://drive.google.com/file/d/1BnmX8X14iyx-NNHlr9YTKWzkdIwlTl1l/view?usp=sharing
Please fill out both releases and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
. A PDF or picture will do. And then proceed to fill out the signup form below to select a session you'd like to attend.
Once, we have received your release forms and you have signed up for a session, we will contact you via email. We will ask some questions to complete your registration. After receiving your response to those questions, we will let you know if there is still space in the session you'd like to join and let you know where and when to arrive. Please note that until we have your completed forms and we have several emails and finally confirming you can attend, you are not approved as an intern and not signed up for that first session.
Parents are welcome to attend all or part of your first session but your parents cannot get you to be approved as an intern. You must email and reply to emails we send. Most of our interns are high school students or adults but we do accept younger applicants if they are very mature and have a keen passion for our mission.
After you have been approved as a Intern, you do not need to fill out the release forms again and there are no more questions but you do need to sign up for each session you want to attend. You sign up for each session with this form by completing the information in this form. You will receive a confirming email saying you are signed up for your chose session.
We limit attendance so if you have to cancel please inform us ASAP so someone else can attend in your stead.
