We are working with NYC's academic institutions to give students the exposure and industry experience needed to start careers in tech.
CUNY Tech Prep
CUNY Tech Prep is a year-long, industry-informed program for advanced students in Computer Science and related majors at the 11 CUNY senior colleges. Through the free program, students will work with a team to complete a full-stack web application, demo it to employers from the NYC tech sector, and work one-on-one with career coaches on professional skills like technical resume writing and interviewing.

Tech Talent Pipeline (TTP) Residency is a three-month program designed to provide on-the-job experience to competitive undergraduates, connect local employers to local talent, and deliver industry feedback to inform curricular content throughout New York City schools.
TTP Residency, in partnership with Hunter College, Lehman College and The City College of New York, connects qualified computer science majors with NYC businesses and serves to further align college-level curricula with employer needs. Students enroll in TTP Residency during their junior year where they participate in a pre-internship training that provides web development and soft-skill curricula. Upon completion of the training, participants begin a paid internship at leading NYC businesses in web, mobile developer or software engineering roles and connection to job opportunities post-graduation.
The NYC Tech Talent Pipeline Academic Council includes 16 NYC institutions that work with us to ensure alignment of computer science education and tech workforce needs across the five boroughs.
