Teen-Turn: Turning teens towards technology.

“Teen-Turn aims to influence course decision-making processes, inform participants on education and career options, and combat stereotypes by strategically changing how girls identify with technology career environments through work placements and after school activities.”

One of the ways in which this charity is achieving this is through their Teen Turnships. This summer, approximately seventy students took part in a two week work placement with various tech related companies around Ireland.

We followed two girls, Nikita Martin and Greta Didziokaite as they embarked on their Teen Turnships with Zendesk.
