Missoula, MT (PRWEB) July 16, 2015
Today, America Campaign™ launches its newest initiative, Vets2Careers. Vets2Careers™ addresses the skills challenges veterans face in finding long-term careers through intensive boot camp style training programs. The goal is to help veterans leverage their military experience while learning new skills that open up new career paths.
“With the explosive growth of coding boot camps and the tremendous opportunities available in Montana’s technology sector, we are excited to partner with Montana Code School to offer scholarships for veterans and military spouses to attend the School” said Devin B. Holmes, Founder of the America Campaign™. “In this intensive teaching format, individuals with little to no programming skills can learn the skills required to find an entry-level coding job in just 12 weeks.”
The Montana Code School was launched as a cross-sector community driven initiative to tackle the immediate need in Montana’s startup and technology sector for qualified junior developers. The School is modeled after several successful coding boot camps that are currently operating in other startup hubs around the globe.
The partnership between Vets2Careers and Montana Code School is part of the initial launch of the American Campaign’s mission to improve the lives of all Americans and the nonprofit communities that serve them.
About the America Campaign™: Launched in 2015 as part of the expansion of the Warrior Gateway™ mission, the America Campaign™ is a national movement to improve the lives of all Americans including our veterans and military families. The America Campaign™ focuses on developing initiatives in the technology, education and arts sectors to drive cross-sector collaboration to better connect individuals with their community.
Warrior Gateway™, now part of the America Campaign™, was founded in 2009 as a national non-profit that connected service members, military families, wounded warriors, families of the fallen and our nation's veterans with government and non-profit programs in their local community. In 2011, Warrior Gateway’s™ efforts were recognized with the Federal Computer Week Fed-100 award for significant contributions to the Federal IT community and in 2012 with a ComputerWorld Honors Laureate for our innovation in creating an open-source platform for information sharing. The America Campaign™ will continue to serve the military community through those programs while expanding its mission to serve the broader community.
