Triangle Inc. and Green Network Exchange have come together not only to promote electronic waste recycling but to help people with disabilities find careers.
Triangle Inc. is a company that provides services to help individuals with disabilities find careers, become self-advocates, and live independently. The company’s Transitions to Successful Careers (TSC) program provides high school and college students with disabilities the opportunity to learn career readiness skills and match them with six-week internship with an organization in their community based on their career aspirations.
This list of organization partnerships now includes Green Network Exchange, one of the most prominent e-waste recycling companies serving greater New England and New York. The partnership between these two companies began when Roger, a TSC student, expressed interest in computers, software and data. As a high school senior, Roger was considering pursuing a degree in computer science upon graduation.
To help Roger reach his goal, Triangle Inc. reached out to David Williams, president and chief executive officer of Green Network Exchange, who was more than happy to employ Roger. Now, Williams and Roger work one-on-one and travel around the “128 Tech Corridor” (Route 128, a state highway in Massachusetts) together to pick up recycled technology. This experience allows Roger to have all the support and training he needs to pursue his goals in the computer science industry.
