NVITE (NoVA IT Employment Partnership)
JOBSEEKERS... are you interested in becoming an IT professional? We can help!
SkillSource was awarded funding by the Greater Washington Community Foundation and the Greater Washington Workforce Collaborative to support the Northern Virginia IT Employment (NVITE) Partnership. Through this two-year program, NVITE will provide unemployed, underemployed, and low-income jobseekers, including veterans, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients, and ex-offenders, with intensive case management, employment coaching, and On-the-Job (OJT) skills training to launch them into entry-level, living wage careers as Computer User Support Specialists. The OJT training subsidies will provide customized training specific to the employer’s needs, culminating in permanent, sustainable employment for the jobseeker. This program will support industry partnerships by addressing the IT workforce needs of all Northern Virginia employers, not just those in the IT industry, while at the same time providing jobseekers with the opportunity to advance on an IT career pathway leading to economic mobility.
