How the Program Works

Please note this is a general outline that may change depending on the specific cohort.

Onboarding Phase (4-6 weeks)

  • After being accepted into the program, participants will go through background checks and sign their program offers. Participants will receive their laptop and other hardware to set up their remote learning environment.

Learning Phase (4 months)

  • Learners begin full-time training through the technical learning program and the AnitaB.org Power Skills curriculum while being paid a competitive hourly wage.
  • AnitaB.org will conduct daily Slack check-ins and recurring 1:1 and group meetings with Learners to support their progress.
  • AnitaB.org provides technical coaches as a technical resource and Bi-Weekly Mentor Sessions for career support. Once a Learner successfully completes the technical learning program and the AnitaB.org Power Skills curriculum, they will convert to an Apprentice.

Apprenticeship Phase (3+ months)

  • The corporate partner will provide mentorship to Apprentices during the Apprenticeship Phase.
  • Apprentices will continue receiving a competitive hourly wage while learning company-specific development processes.
  • Apprentices may have the opportunity to convert to a full-time role after completing the Apprenticeship Phase.

Career Support Phase (upon program completion)

  • AnitaB.org will continue to offer mentorship and upskilling opportunities to all APP participants for two years so they can navigate challenges and advance their careers.
  • Participants will have access to an AnitaB.org Premium Membership and all its benefits for two years, including exclusive events, content library, and networking opportunities with a community of over 100,000 members worldwide.
