Bridging the Gap for Women and Minorities in Tech in Madison WI.

YWeb Career Academy is an employment service program that trains women and people of color to become web developers/designers.

Technical Skills


Do you enjoy learning for its own sake? Do unknowns drive you to dig deeper?

Each cohort is composed of 20–25 students. The program includes 400 hours of intensive technical training. Students are expected to complete job-related projects and work outside of class time and to be actively engaged in the learning process.

Employability Skills


Resumés, Interview Prep, Time Management, Business Etiquette, Finance & Budgets, Business basics, Wage Negotiation, Networking, linkedIN

Students also receive soft skills training, including situational workplace judgment, active listening, communication skills, and problem solving. Hard skills, such as technical training, are required to get a job but people skills will open future doors and assist in sustaining and building relationships.

Internships


Each student who completes the program enters a paid internship. If your company takes on interns, that would be a wonderful way for the students to put their new skills and experience to use.

Increase economic well-being.

Impacting Communities Beyond Imagination

Over the years the YWeb CA has grown and it’s reach and impact has grown as well. We seen that our impact has a global reach improving situations and empowering people in places we never imagined possible. All while showing how important our efforts really are.

Connecting Lives

When I first got walked into the Yweb class my first thought was I don’t have anything in common with nobody here. It took just a month for me to figure out even though we all come from different walks of life, we all had more in common than we thought. Now that the class is ending I’m going to miss everybody here.

Do the work

One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men/women.
No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man/woman.
