Interested in Training & Employment in the Information Technology Sector?
The TechHire grant is a statewide workforce program designed to recruit, assess, train and place youth and young adults with barriers to employment and who lack educational attainment, work experience or job skill level into Maine’s Information Technology (IT) industry sector. The goal of TechHire is to assist participants with the skills training and job placement assistance needed to secure middle and high level employment in IT. TechHire provides individualized career navigation and planning services, assistance with identifying and completing training resulting in an industry recognized credential for a specific IT career path, and support with employment placement into IT through such services as internships, work experience, and on-the-job training. If you are a Maine youth seeking skills training and a job in IT, this program may be for you.
The current participation requirements are: Maine Resident between the ages of 17 and 29*, out of secondary school (high school), work authorized in the United States, unemployed or underemployed. Have goals of participating in skills training linking to a credential for IT, and securing employment in IT.

This four million dollar project is fully funded by a U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration grant awarded to Coastal Counties Workforce, Inc. the Local Workforce Development Board for Maine’s six coastal counties. This program/activity is an equal opportunity employer/program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
*For non-youth over age 29, TechHire has very limited enrollment availability. You may contact the TechHire Navigator to inquire about free IT training resources and a wait list for future enrollment in TechHire. Signing up for the wait list does not guarantee you will be enrolled into the grant at a later date. The Navigator can also refer you to the Maine CareerCenter network of providers who offer additional job training/workforce development program assistance that can help meet your training and employment needs.
