Limited access to resources that foster career readiness and success is an obstacle faced by many young professionals of color. As a response, Restoration has partnered with The Marcy Lab School to launch the Breakthrough Technology Fellowship, a 12-week pilot program designed to train New Yorkers with prior programming or computer science experience for competitive, full-time software engineering roles. The program follows a robust curriculum focused on career fluency, racial identity development, and 1:1 coaching.

So far, fellows have started full-time tech jobs at companies including The New York Times, Asana, WW, Democracy Works, and Bevy.

"Shortly before my first coding bootcamp ended, COVID hit New York, which made my job search much more difficult. With job offerings drying up and traditional networking tactics being almost impossible, I focused on looking for programs with the right expertise and relationships to help me launch a career. By the end of the coding courses and professional development lessons, I plan on being able to market my skills and my story to potential employers more effectively."
