We Support the White House TechHire Initiative
In March 2015, President Obama launched the TechHire initiative based on a simple idea: Building a pipeline of tech talent can bring new jobs to local economies, facilitate business growth, and give local residents a pathway into the middle class. To build such a pipeline, TechHire addresses employers’ great need for technology talent with emerging models for quickly training people with limited in-going technology skills to be job-ready in months, not years.
Skillspire partners with TechHire and will work to build an IT career pipeline for, young adults, and others—including Native American, veterans, and frontline workers looking to upskill. This program will connect participants with a customized training track based on their needs.The program aims to prepare participants for career pathways in two high-growth IT occupations: Computer User Support Specialist and Computer Programmer.
