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.

Best Buy Teen Tech Centers are safe, after-school spaces that provide opportunities for teens to learn new tech skills, stay on track with school, gain exposure to new career possibilities and benefit from positive adult and peer relationships.
