Focused on-work based learning, the initiative reverse engineers the curriculum to employer positions, standards and certifications.
Additionally, the initiative provides a five prong support model to equip and prepare both the young talent and the employers.
Scholars must agree to devote full time to the training program, and must pass a vigorous exam to successfully complete the course. Scholars will have the assistance of an assigned mentor from the high tech industry, a corporate companion from the prospective employer, a guidance counselor who will be available 24/7.
Upon successful completion of the 9-month course, the Springboard Scholar will be guaranteed a job offer.
