This past summer Archangel partnered with Baltimore City’s youth program Youthworks to provide employment opportunities for young people between the ages of 14-20, as a part of our Youth Tech Leadership Program. The program focused on teaching participants specialized tech skills, as well as workforce development for the real world.

“Since my early years, I’ve held an interest in computers, which fuels my eagerness to delve into this field.”
YouthWorks is a program within the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, Youth Services Division. We provide a 5-week job opportunity to thousands of Baltimore City young people between the ages of 14 to 20.
Archangel believes in investing in the people of the future, and we are taking active measures to ensure these goals. Mirroring our operation at our Miami headquarters, we offer training and real-life work experience for high school students whereby they can earn credits while gaining valuable skills in the fields of IT and computer repair. Our goal is to bring the Youth Tech Leadership Program to each satellite office.

The Archangel Youth Tech Leadership Program offers students the opportunity to learn hands-on technical skills. Our In-House technicians teach students the process of replacing screens, motherboards, keyboards, ports, and more. Students will have opportunities to receive certifications to fix Chromebooks and Laptops from the following companies: Lenovo, HP, Samsung, and ASUS.
According to the City of Baltimore, more than 1 in 4 Baltimore households lack digital devices, and more than 40 percent lack internet access. Thus, creating a digital divide. The lack of access to technology can create challenges in an ever-growing technically advanced society. We intend to increase this access through the purchase of low-cost devices through schools and public entities in the Baltimore area, increasing employment opportunities, and lastly, in partnership with Youthworks, Archangel aims to give teens technical skills and access to certificates.
