At Phone2Action, we believe that anyone, regardless of background, can make a positive impact by building products that empower people. Since our inception, we have acted on the belief that a college degree does not guarantee talent and the lack of a degree should not be an obstacle to professional advancement for any individual. Civic technology is a new field that benefits from a wide diversity of tech talent. We welcome women, minorities, people with special needs, veterans and people of any age who are passionate about technology and civic participation and want to enter our industry.
WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP?
Apprenticeship is a proven approach to preparing workers for jobs while meeting the business need for a highly skilled workforce. It is an employer-driven, “learn-while-you-earn” model that combines on-the-job training with job-related instruction in curricula tied to skills standards set by the US Department of Labor. Our engineering apprentices are embedded in the culture and operations of our teams. They are members of the sprint teams and contribute to the release of new products. They have structured hours with a dedicated mentor, which are used to learn new skills from seasoned engineers or to discuss problem-solving techniques.
Phone2Action is a member of the Consumer Technology Association Apprenticeship Coalition.
Phone2Action is also recognized by the Commonwealth of Virginia as a participant in its Registered Apprentice and Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Eligible Training Providers Program.
