CODE/INTERACTIVE :: TECH CAREER ACCELERATOR PROGRAM

The Tech Career Accelerator Program is a 2-year program for students from underrepresented groups studying computer science at CUNY. The program creates a bridge between students’ junior and senior years in college and their first jobs in the tech sector by providing mentoring, career preparation, and internships.

TCAP Scholars receive:

  • One-on-one mentorship throughout their last two years in college
  • Interviews for summer internships and full-time positions at NYC’s top tech companies (eBay, Goldman Sachs, Blue Apron, Foursquare, and more)
  • Quarterly professional development events
  • Technical training on common industry technologies
  • Access to a community of support through Code/Interactive’s network of students, educators, and professionals
