Reskill Americans is a nonprofit founded by tech veterans that provides tuition-free software development training, mentorship and community to unemployed, underemployed and career switching underrepresented minorities across the U.S. to help them launch a career path in tech. We eliminate traditional barriers to access so that aspiring tech professionals with no prior experience can enroll in our rigorous, instructor–led online program. Participants who complete our seven-month program will have applied their new skills to software development projects, worked on cross-functional teams, and built a portfolio of work to show future employers.

Reskill Americans Software Development Training Program

We scale up tuition-free software development training underrepresented minorities throughout the U.S., with no tuition cost or pre-qualifications. To enroll, participants must self-identify as an underrepresented racial minority, be eligible to work in the U.S, and have a computer with internet access.

Our online program is a rigorous seven-month course (a minimum of 15 hours a week), and is taught through a range of recorded and live formats on an LMS, including chats/office hours with instructors. Participants who complete our program will have applied their new skills to software development projects, worked on cross-functional teams and built a portfolio of work to show future employers.
