Our goal at Main Street Codes is to create a core group of individuals in the area who have the technical skills that will draw remote work salaries from outside the region, create digital products and apps, and drive innovation and growth for decades to come. In the past we've offered in-person courses but we are transitioning to a new model where we leverage an external provider for courses, freeing us up to focus on securing paid apprenticeship projects and providing learning community support.
We're recruiting a local cohort to participate in our 2022 Talent Drive Program. This is a self-paced online learning track that you are complete to complete from home or out of our space at 341 E Main St, Galesburg, IL.
Please visit the 2022 Talent Drive page for additional program details.
