In July 2021, STL SMARTphones partnered with St. Louis-based non-profit LinkSTL to provide free smartphone repair training for Hyde Park residents. Based in North St. Louis, Link STL improves lives by linking people to possibilities. The STL SMARTphone Training Initiative introduces students to electronics repairs through an interactive and enriching curriculum.

September's classes were focused on introductions. Intro to both, smartphone repairs and to our new friends. Students received their introductory training gear including backpack, magnetic trays, safety glasses and gloves, professional toolkit and additional items to assist each student's journey.

Over the coming months, we will dig deeper into the hardware of our most popular smartphones. We will practice troubleshooting and organization. The end goal is for each student to have the skillsets to execute fundamental smartphone repairs and to start a lifelong love of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

Our official partnership extends until January 2022. But the passion we have for education and outreach is forever.
