TechForce Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) that champions students to and through their education and into careers as professional technicians.
For too long, we’ve accepted as truth that a college degree is the only way to get ahead and we’ve overlooked the gifts, talents and significant contributions of students who don’t fit the four-year mold. For students who are mechanically minded, and learn best when they’re in action, a quality technical or vocational education can be the path to success. These hands-on heroes deserve an education that matches their unique talents, and we owe it to them to support the technical and vocational schools that teach the way they learn.
The transportation industry is booming and becoming more technologically advanced each day. Ask any employer of technicians, and you’ll hear their woes regarding the shortfall of skilled labor, not enough trained technicians to fill their demand, and serious competition in recruiting talent. TechForce Foundation minds this gap, and strives to inspire and support those wanting to pursue careers in this industry. Those choosing this path are enjoying plentiful, well-paying jobs and career advancement opportunities.
