Part Time Employment Opportunity for Youth (Girls) Ages 18-21
Technology Enabled Girl Ambassador (TEGA)

The Youth Initiative of Adams County (ACYI) is seeking 12 Technology Empowered Girl Ambassadors (TEGAs) to participate in the pilot phase of a project designed to empower girls to collect authentic data about the experiences of their peers and others in the community. The information they gather will be used to help inform work our Partners are doing to improve educational outcomes for young people in the area.

The TEGA Program is an exciting new project where you’ll learn to be a digital interviewer. You will gain an interviewer qualification and speak to members of the community to learn more about them and their lives using a specially designed mobile app. You will need to be able to read and write English and have a passion for learning about the world around you.

You don’t need to have any previous work experience or qualifications, we are simply looking for girls ages 18-21 who live in Aams County who demonstrate that they are willing to be:

  • Curious
  • Courageous
  • Kind & Understanding
  • A Good Listener
  • Non-judgemental
  • Patient
  • Reflective
  • Responsible
  • Tech Smart
  • Trustworthy

These skills are called our TEGA Sparks – and are what we look for most in TEGAs. You don’t need to have all of these Sparks now, you just need to be willing to learn and show potential.

Status: Temporary, Part-Time. Beginning May 2018 and running through December 2018 with the possibility of extending until age 24.
Reports to: TEGA Liaison
