A new pilot initiative at 9 colleges aims to help underrepresented people access reskilling opportunities to advance in the tech field. With support from Verizon and in collaboration with nonprofit training provider Generation USA, the nonprofit JFF is leading the 9 colleges to accelerate entry into tech careers. Part of Citizen Verizon, Verizon’s responsible business plan, the free, online reskilling program aims to prepare 500,000 individuals for jobs of the future by 2030, with a focus on access for people underrepresented in tech positions. JFF expects to expand to 15 colleges by 2022.
