Do you want to further your education and training for a job in information technology? Propel America can help!

Propel America’s mission is to equip young adults with the skills, experiences, networks, and credentials they need to obtain an upwardly mobile job. It begins with an information session that is geared towards 18-24 year olds interested in a career in IT. In the Information Session, you will learn about BPCC’s Information Technology Help Desk program, explore career opportunities in information technology, and begin building your personal career plan.
Participants will then apply to Propel’s fellowship program, which provides the following supports to help you along your career journey:

  • Enrollment in BPCC’s IT/Helpdesk program (tuition free) for Spring 2022 (January-May 2022) and Fall 2022 (August-December 2022)
  • Apply and interview for a paid full-time call center job at General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) to work while you train at BPCC
  • Guaranteed interview for a Computer Operator position at GDIT upon successful completion of BPCC’s IT/Helpdesk program
  • Mentor support as you train and transition into employment
  • Assistance with future academic/career planning

Apply to become a fellow with Propel America! We are looking for young people who are passionate about the career pathway they are applying for and ready to work full-time for at least a year after training.

Application Deadline: October 1, 2021 (11:59 pm)
