Gameheads’ goal, in partnership with TekPerfect, is to provide tech training to underserved youth of color. The vision of the training and apprenticeship program is to create meaningful career pathways into the tech industry. Once the students have developed proficiency in fundamental skills related to operating systems, networking basics, security, and cloud computing systems administration and deployment, they are prepared to provide technical services to private employers under the supervision of experienced mentors. This direct pipeline to paid work ensures that the students’ skills are relevant, marketable, and can be applied in the workplace.
