Bringing Tech Education to Underrepresented Populations

Niantic partnered with Tech Elevator to offer a 100% tuition-free, software engineering scholarship to 20 individuals who are underrepresented in technology.

The Tech Elevator + Niantic Voyager Apprenticeship Program exemplifies an inclusive approach to bridging the tech skills gap.

In 2022, Niantic came to Tech Elevator with a desire to bring education opportunities to underrepresented communities in tech. With our mission to elevate people, companies and communities, this partnership was a natural fit.

The program entailed sending 20 selected individuals to Tech Elevator's online, full-time coding bootcamp to learn coding fundamentals. At the conclusion of the 14-week program, the individuals emerged as full-stack developers and had the opportunity to join Niantic for a six-month apprenticeship.

This partnership contributed to both organizations' shared mission of diversifying the technology workforce and making education opportunities more accessible to underrepresented communities.
