08 Sep: Teen Tech Center Coordinator’s Journey Comes Full Circle

The Brooklyn Public Library system in New York has played a special role in Nadine Cabrera’s life.

She got a part-time job at the Bay Ridge Library when she was 15 years old, helping visitors check out and return books. Then, in March 2019, a new Best Buy Teen Tech Center opened at the Kings Highway Library, and Nadine was hired to run it.

“I never had specific career goals. I just wanted a job that would allow me to keep a roof over my head,” she said.

08 Sep: Intern Program Creates Pathways, Access To Tech Careers

The youngest of six siblings, Jaime Flores was the only one in his family born in the United States. And he’ll be the first to pursue a college degree.

He spent his senior year of high school interning at Best Buy as part of our partnership with Genesys Works, an organization that provides career pathways for high school students from disinvested communities.

It’s been a valuable opportunity for him to work at a Fortune 500 company, as he prepares to pursue a career in mechanical engineering.
