TRANSFORMING NONPROFITS AND COMMUNITIES
Technology Career Program
The Technology Career Program is a free, part-time 16-week program that focuses on technology and business education for unemployed or underemployed adults interested in finding a career in technology. After achieving success with their first class based in Atlanta, TechBridge and Goodwill of North Georgia were quick to continue collaboration and launch the first Technology Career Program class in Cobb County in partnership with CobbWorks.
Cobb County’s first class concluded with an 84% graduation rate (vs. 19% college graduation rate in tech nationwide), with 19 of 21 graduates achieving certifications. Notably, 33% of graduates were women and 28% of graduates were veterans.
