Germanna Tech Talent Pipeline

This project will utilize GO Virginia funds to develop two new curriculums to train a workforce in information technology (IT), engineering, computer science and cyber related professions; host two summer camps for middle/high school students; and develop a web portal to engage students in jobs that meet their credentials. GO Virginia funds will be used to 1) purchase and install specialized lab equipment in 4 existing GCC classrooms, 2) train and certify 20 middle and high school instructors, 3) Cover roughly half the costs of the outreach activities in area middle and high schools, and 4) create and implement the web portal and communication/promotion campaign.
