Technology Career Training

DiverseIT trains people who are interested making technology a career. Our aim is to extend the many employment opportunities offered in the field of technology to people with disabilities, people of color, and other populations that are too often excluded from IT.

Ours is a professional, hands-on environment that uses multiple strategies including on-the-job training, internships, group training, project-based learning, individual mentoring, and online training.

Our career track options are listed below, as well as information about financial aid.
