Youth Réparothons

How does it work ?

A Youth Réparothon is a free repair event at a high school, CEGEP or university, where young volunteers help other students repair their electronic devices to extend their life.

Experienced technicians and young Insertech assistants support and mentor the student volunteers.

Goals

  • Promote young people’s empowerment with regard to their digital consumption
  • Encourage them to help each other repair
  • Stimulate girls’ interest in technology
  • Raise environmental awareness
  • Empower young people in the process of integration, by involving them as mentors

Our next events

Volunteers are happy to show you how to repair, but they’re not necessarily professionals, although they’ll have the support of Insertech technicians.

A Réparothon is an event organized by and for the community, to learn how to repair your own device. Taking part means you are responsible for your own device.

By participating, you agree to the following conditions:

  • You must back up your data before bringing your device.
  • If you have purchased software on your device, you must bring your license numbers and passwords, as well as the software itself, in case you need to reinstall any of your software.
  • Only one device is allowed per person.
  • Volunteers are not necessarily professionals. You are responsible for your own device.
  • Problem resolution is not always possible.
  • You must bring your own charger/power cable.
  • We have no replacement parts or glass for phones or tablets.
  • If you need a replacement part, you’ll need to get one before coming.
  • You authorize us to take photos of you during the event, and to use the images for our communications.
