We’re all wired differently and not every student wants to go to a 4-year university. For many, a technical education and career is an ideal pathway to a vibrant, sustainable future.
It’s time our nation brings back respect for technical education, skilled trades and these `new collar’ STEM careers. Skilled technicians are essential workers who keep America rolling.
to Connect Students
Using a cloud-based, IT platform, TechForce Foundation starts early, helping middle and high school students consider and explore the technician career and stays with them through their journey, connecting them to resources, such as schools, scholarships & grants, apprenticeships and jobs-the tools needed to steer their future success.
