TechHire is a bold, multi-sector initiative and call to action to empower Americans with the skills they need. Universities, community colleges, and nontraditional training providers like “coding boot camps,” and high-quality online courses can rapidly train workers for well-paying, open jobs, often in just a few months. Through the collaboration of employers, training providers, and workforce and economic development organizations, TechHire communities have been using data and innovative hiring practices to expand non-traditional hirings, building accelerated training programs that prepare individuals in months instead of years, and connecting people to jobs with hiring on-ramp programs.
ATL TechHire will train the City of Atlanta’s youth and young adults with barriers to employment and other unemployed and underemployed for open jobs in tech. Led by the Atlanta Workforce Development Agency, ATL TechHire has developed customizable training tracks to serve differing needs. Participants will be enrolled in innovative Culture Fit and Career Readiness programs, as well as fast-track training with coding bootcamps, to train participants for jobs in front- and back-end engineering, mobile engineering, data science, and design; or with the Atlanta Technical College for degrees that lead to in-demand IT jobs.
