Here’s an awesome idea! GadgitKids works “to create a society of mobile device users whose capabilities keep pace with the sophistication of technology.” – They do this through “reverse mentoring” – a collaborative intergenerational win-win process of employing high school and college students as “GadgitKids” giving them the tools and training to be effective communicators with a passion for helping others learn technology.
“Young people, our future leaders, need confidence and support,” says GadgitKids. “You need their technical knowledge. The end result of effective reverse mentoring is a working relationship between a young person and an adult which is mutually beneficial. ”
GadgitKids invites college students, or high school students entering their junior or senior year, to review the position descriptions on their website and submit an application to become a GadgitKid. Currently, applications from Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties are being considered.
