In May of 2012 TechCircles accepted its first intern. A young man who would like to eventually get a degree in Computer Science began working with TechCircles and getting valuable hands-on experience that is difficult to get in school or private courses. He trained for six months and was hired on as staff at the end of the year. This was a great benefit to his family, as his mother had been on kidney dialysis for many years and finally passed away. He now has valuable skills that can help him to contribute to his family income and allow him to hopfully reach his dream of attending and completing college.
