Founded by concerned area employers who saw a dramatic need for a skilled IT workforce, Tech Foundry is on a mission to build the most dynamic and fluid IT workforce development and training programs ever created. Driven by specific employer demands, we combine hands-on skill focused technical training with professional development, which aids us in our overarching duty to elevate an under-served, at-risk population into tomorrow’s IT workforce.
Tech Foundry is turning workforce development on its head by taking a top-down approach to IT training. We utilize a groundbreaking employer partnership program that translates their open IT positions into a list of specific and quantifiable skills that can be taught and measured. Volunteers from partner organizations take the time to help teach the specific skills that matter most to them in candidates. Through the combination of training, mentoring, soft skills development and internship placement, Tech Foundry is able to take a group of students, who otherwise had little to no IT experience when they started and mold them into the job-seekers that employers are looking to hire. Call it common sense, call it stacking the deck, but we make sure that each student learns the technical concepts and skills that are most in demand in the local economy.
