iHOPE Academy is collecting toys for our annual Toy Drive. After the toys are received and before the toy is given to a child, the toy must be adapted first. The toys received are given to children with traumatic brain injuries and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Adapting the toys requires opening up the toy’s electronics and soldering in a cable that is attached to a switch, which will then allow the child to play with the toy. Often we must use a 3D printer to create parts for the toys as well. The best candidates for this position are students with prior experience in soldering and finding creative solutions to problems.
If you have experience in soldering and will be available to intern at least one day a week, on a Monday-Friday, throughout the months of October, November, and December (and possibly beyond) we hope you will apply to this position.
Please ensure that you are able to support your prior experience in soldering when submitting your application.
