About Tech Center

For over 30 years, the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) has taken a holistic, solution-oriented approach that reflects a commitment to both cities and nature. CNT is a creative think-and-do tank that combines rigorous research and analysis with effective actions that to achieve substantial improvements in public policy and private markets. Our mission is to promote more livable and sustainable urban communities. We have tackled a wide range of issues, always with an eye toward simultaneously improving the environment, strengthening the economy, and advancing equity. We work across disciplines and issues, including transportation and community development, energy, natural resources, and climate change.



CNT has a strong reputation as a leader in promoting urban sustainability—the more effective use of existing resources and community assets to improve the health of natural systems and the wealth of people, today and in the future. CNT is a recipient of the 2009 MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.



CNT has pioneered map-based tools that enable citizens, communities, service providers and policymakers to communicate issues, understand needs, and create more effective implementation plans for urban sustainability. CNT has two affiliates, CNT Energy (www.cntenergy.org) and I-GO car sharing (www.igocars.org).



In addition, CNT practices sustainable development “at home” in its LEED-certified Platinum building.

sort of a mercenary position, good if you're a consumer electronics ace.
Electronics Repair Technician, Danvers, MA - July 14, 2014
The Tech Center, was, well is, my first hands on electronics job. In some ways it is helpful; learning the varying ways smart phones, laptops, and such are put together. However, the repair work is more centered on light repair, so alot of theory knowledge isn't necessary. The perk is working with the devices, though when they go wrong that becomes the biggest bane.
Most of the time I work by myself, there is limited support if trouble arises and generally no back up plan. Forget breaks if it's busy, because you are the one making cost estimates, diagnostics, writing up slips, and doing repairs all while the lovely carousel of mall food court noise is in the background.
If you think you can handle all this while for the most part flying solo, than good for you, this will be fine. However, be prepared for somewhat sub-par compensation, I got to deal with all this for $10/ hr, so the money's not the best- but like I said, if you got the skills and it comes easy under noise and stress than you'll be fine.
