Workforce Development

To stop the cycle of generational poverty, we must bridge the opportunity gap for middle-class jobs.

TechBridge focuses on workforce development to change the trajectory of those who are unemployed or underemployed. By equipping adults from disadvantaged households with technological, financial, and professional skills, we help provide financial stability and a path to life-long success and self-sufficiency.

Another TCP Success Story

Lyric McGhee headshot

"A moment that stands out to me from the Technology Career Program (TCP) was during the week of interviewing for the companies we would intern with for a year to gain our experience working with Salesforce. I had four interviews, Configero, NCR, Graphic Packaging, and Southern Company. This moment was big because I had to practice and prepare for the interviews, work at my job which was Wal-Mart at the time and prepare to take the Salesforce Certification Exam. I had three interviews in one day and had to take my exam between my second and third one. In the end, I got a great job and certified!"
