Jeff Tech Student Completes Summer IT Internship

Jeff Tech student, Trentyn Walter of Mayport, PA spent four weeks this summer working as an Information Technology Intern at Community Action, Inc. in Punxsutawney. The internship was made possible through funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Workforce Solutions for North Central Pennsylvania. According to Susan K. Fusco, Community Action, Inc.’s Executive Director, the internship program’s goal was to expose youth to career opportunities within the region, increase their work skills, and foster their desire to remain in the region after completing school or secondary education. During his internship, Trentyn used the practical skills learned at Jeff Tech for troubleshooting and maintaining computer equipment while expanding his knowledge of software applications and computer and network hardware. He also gained experience in employment expectations, interactions with supervisors, and employment documentation such as employment forms and timesheets. Trentyn stated he enjoyed the internship and gained valuable work experience and technical knowledge. Fusco added Community Action, Inc. hopes to engage other vocational-technical students and adults through various internship and volunteer opportunities. “Trentyn was a delightful and valued employee and our staff learned as much from Trentyn as we hope he learned from us.” Community Action, Inc. extends thanks to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor, Workforce Solutions for North Central Pennsylvania, and the Jefferson County-DuBois Area Vocational School for working together to make Trentyn’s internship possible.
