It’s no secret that at NYCDA we believe everyone can (and should!) learn to code. With headquarters in New York City, we’ve noticed the huge industry demand for local tech employees, and we’re taking steps to make web development training accessible to everyone.
How? The NYC Web Development Fellowship program. In our latest effort to help more New Yorkers realize their potential for a career in technology, we’ve partnered with New York City’s Tech Talent Pipeline to offer our Software Engineering Intensive program AT NO COST for eligible applicants. Graduates earn average starting salaries of $65,000 and have snagged jobs at companies like Spotify, Viacom and Kickstarter.
The fourteen-week NYC Web Development Fellowship program prepares participants for careers as full-stack web developers, plus offers training in professional skills so grads are workforce-ready. After the training, participants are connected to two-month internships with NY-based tech companies after which they are connected to employment opportunities.
We’re currently accepting applications for participants in NYCDA’s first Web Development Fellowship cohort, which kicks off in February 2018.
