APPRENTICES

Year Long Experience

We offer year long Software Development Apprenticeships in San Diego where apprentices get paid to learn software development and then get real world experience working on projects through our Partner Companies and contract work we oversee

New Collar Jobs

Not everyone has the opportunity to get a costly 4 year degree or can afford the investment of the large amount of time necessary to learn software development on their own. We don't think those people should be relegated to blue-collar or minimum-wage jobs fore the rest of their lives. We are getting people the training they need to get new-collar jobs, improve their futures and the communities they are a part of. There are a wide range of ways to get involved, help support the apprentices and the community.
