Why the Techtonic Group?
The Techtonic Group is an award winning private company providing a turn-key IT apprenticeship program, certified by the U.S. Dept. of Labor. Awarded a 2017 Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award, the program attracts and recruits people with non-traditional backgrounds, training them for new careers as software developers and coders, and providing them with real-life apprenticeship opportunities.
Why Stagecoach Foundation?
We are seeing job and salary growth across the film and tech industries, as more employers require the development of complex digital infrastructures. From the creation of interactive mobile applications to software coding and building computer networks in support of industry expansion, security and protection, employment opportunities are increasing for those with skills and training.
Why Santa Fe?
Stagecoach Foundation supports Techtonic Academy’s Apprenticeship Program, based in Santa Fe, which serves the technology and arts sectors and the youth of Northern New Mexico. Together, we focus on the coding and programming needs of the next generation to convert these creative economies into future career paths for local youth.
