The Tech Academy launched in September 2018 and is a 6-month training program offering coding skills, using a program developed by Interapt, to the Atlanta community at large preparing individuals as junior software developers. Participants receive full tuition, supplies, and a $125 weekly stipend along with daily meals. We are seeking employment partners who are willing to hire candidates from our Tech Academy.
