Web Development Apprenticeship
Our web development apprenticeship program exists to transform people’s lives by empowering those who do not have the typical background for entering tech to launch new careers in that field. We provide professional technical solutions to nonprofit and mission-based organizations to help carry out their purpose.
We can build a range of products and features, including:
Our organization works with non-traditional entry level web developers and provides them with real life projects over a staggered 17 week program participation model. They work collaboratively within a team environment under the supervision and mentorship of experienced tech professionals. We offer our solutions PRO BONO to qualified nonprofit or social organizations.
First, we schedule a meeting with your organization's key stakeholders and our program director to get the initial details of your project and see if we're a good fit. The ideal client/project is brand new, open to any technical solution(s) our team can create and has an open time frame.
Once we're ready to go, we collaborate with you on breaking the project down into specific roles and detailed features. This is a critical first step into getting started on your project - client involvement is KEY. Then we get to work!
This is the crux of what we do. Using an iterative process, we breathe life into your product, creating the features that drive its functionality and turning idea into reality. Instead of waiting until the end to demonstrate the final product, we build it in stages, always looping you in to make sure we stay on the right track. Our apprentice developers make sure you’re beyond satisfied before handing over your finalized, polished product.
