Part of our mission is to make careers in technology as accessible as possible for the underrepresented, the highly gifted, and the veterans who keep our country safe. Within the last six months DigitalCrafts has implemented various scholarships and discounts to help prospective students pay for tuition. But we can do more and find ways to break down the financial roadblock of attending a coding bootcamp. That said being said, DigitalCrafts is now an official provider for WorkSource Atlanta effective August 1st, 2018. WorkSource Atlanta is an agency within the City of Atlanta whose mission is to provide job seekers with resources to attain sustainable employment. They collaborate with local businesses to provide training to their customers in hopes of securing long-term financial stability and careers in various industries.
WorkSource Atlanta provides services such as, GED preparation, interview training, and computer skills development just to name a few. They also provide supportive services such as child care, transportation and computer lab access for those who don't have resources of their own.
