Participants have the opportunity to receive training for the industry-recognized CompTIA IT Fundamentals+ Certification, which can lead to positions in Data Entry, Technical Support, Networking & Security. We work with our community partners to provide soft skills trainings that prepare participants to ace the interview using proven methods for success.


We also collaborate with local employers to learn more about the industry landscape and provide our participants with usable job-seeking information. In addition to preparing participants with the hard and soft skills they need, TechCareers also focuses on assisting with the job search and placement process. ​The TechCareers program model is structured to suit the needs of traditionally underserved populations through practical trainings, flexible scheduling, referrals to community resources and barrier resolution. We find that these key components result in measurable achievements for our participants.
