LaunchCode, a non-profit organization based in St. Louis, Missouri that works with businesses to set up apprenticeships in technology for talented people who lack the traditional IT credentials, was recently named among the top five coding programs that are changing the face of tech, by livability. According to the website, LaunchCode has helped propel more than 910 apprenticeships and direct hires across its network of cities.
“Apprenticeship equips our workforce with accessible training that minimizes the skills gap threatening our country’s economic future,” says Jeff Mazur, Executive Director of LaunchCode. “Taking on an apprentice gives employers a low-risk way to build a junior talent pipeline and the flexibility to mold apprentices to their unique needs.”
Missouri’s tech hub benefits from low operating costs, turnkey communications infrastructure and efficient access to global data markets via convenient fiber, while organizations like LaunchCode and Claim Academy are delivering IT talent at an accelerated rate.
