Offering youth entering the digital economy support and encouragement through internship opportunities.

The Computers for Schools Plus (CFS+) program is committed to building a skilled, diverse workforce reflective of Canadian society. As a result, we promote employment equity and encourage candidates to indicate voluntarily on their application if they are a woman, an Aboriginal person, a person with a disability or a member of a visible minority group.


“The CFS program has taught me so much.” – Audrey

“Yes, CFS internships give you work experience. But more than that, it’s meaningful work experience. I was often asked which kinds of projects I was interested in trying and which areas I wanted to learn more about. I got to work on a bunch of different things, from web design to communications. And their support didn’t stop at the end of the internship. They care about where you are going next, and it’s important for them that you are gaining something valuable while you are there.” — Amanda




Hands-on work experience

Providing youth with paid learning opportunities.

CFS+ Internships have provided employment and training to more than 7000 youth over the years. Youth hired by the CFS+ program gain experience relevant to future careers through hands-on training in computer refurbishment activities, communications and social media content creation and other digital work.

“When I was an intern myself, I learned both technical and soft skills. But CFS internships go beyond the technical aspect, and that’s kind of the best part. What we’re really giving our interns is a chance to further their education and move forward with their life.” — Justin

More than just technical skills

Providing guidance for the future.

CFS+ Internships provide youth with a variety of opportunities, offering them support as they continue their studies or embark on their careers.

CFS+ internships encourage youth to learn and broaden their knowledge and gives them confidence in the skills they already possess. Interns explore what the digitalizing economy can offer them, while learning essential transverse skills such as problem-solving, learning, and communication strategies, as well as teamwork and leadership skills.

“The program affected me a lot in a positive way. Personally, I have anxiety problems, and that’s why I left [have yet to complete] my studies. The people here are very understanding, and they do what they can to accommodate me but, at the same time, they push me to surpass my own limits. Everyone here has their own story, and it’s thanks to these internships that we’ve been able to grow. Working here has given me confidence and has let me discover the field I’m interested in. I’m proud of the work I do here and it makes me want to give it my all.” — Ayman
