LaGuardia TechHire – OpenCode:
Network Administration

 

LaGuardia TechHire – OpenCode is a partnership between LaGuardia Community College, The Software Guild, Udacity, General Assembly, and Uncubed. It is funded by a highly selective grant from the U.S. Department of Labor and the result of a White House initiative under President Obama called TechHire.

The goal of TechHire – OpenCode is to increase the diversity and scale of tech talent pipelines for employers by providing industry-informed training to young adults (17 – 29 years old) who are otherwise under-represented within the tech industry.

Graduates of TechHire – OpenCode now work as engineers and analysts at Google, Viacom, Infosys, Intersection, BounceX, Adobe, Capgemini, and more.
