This 4 million dollar project is fully funded by a U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration grant awarded to and managed by Coastal Counties Workforce, Inc. Additional partners include: Educate Maine, Maine Dept. of Education, Workforce Solutions, Central Western Workforce Development Board, and Northeastern Workforce Development Board.
Maine has been designated a TechHire Community because these ten key Maine employers embraced the idea from the very start that valuable tech employees don’t necessarily come through the traditional route of a computer science degree in college. They pledged to recruit and hire candidates based on their demonstrated technology skills regardless of where they gained them.
