TechHire Initiative: Creating Pathways to Better, High-Paying Tech Jobs and Meeting Urgent Employer Demand Across the U.S.
On March 10, 2015, President Obama announced his TechHire initiative, a new campaign to expand local tech sectors by building tech talent pipelines in communities across the country. That announcement included three main components: (1) More than 20 communities with over 300 employer partners signed on to pilot accelerated training strategies; (2) large private-sector companies and national organizations committed to providing tools to support these TechHire communities; and (3) the President pledged $100 million in federal grant funding.
Today, the number of TechHire communities has more than doubled, to 50. If your community is interested to join the TechHire movement, please scroll down for more information on the TechHire initiative and how to get involved.
