New Partner Alert: Operation Spark

Look out, Louisiana! We're excited to be pairing up with New Orleans-based nonprofit Operation Spark to provide tuition and cost of living financing towards their Full Immersion Program.

Operation Spark's mission is to enable low-opportunity individuals with a fast-paced track to a new career as a software developer. There are over 20,000 young adults in the city of New Orleans who are not in school nor employed. That's where Operation Spark comes in: to equip them with the skills they need to land a great career, all the while filling the state of Louisiana's technology skills gap.

Over the course of three months in the Immersion Bootcamp, Operation Spark students learn CSS, HTML and Fullstack Javascript. A typical day in the life of an Operation Spark students include lectures, code-alongs, group exercises, code reviews, and portfolio building. At the end of the program, students are ready to jumpstart their career as a Fullstack Developer or Software Engineer.

For Operation Spark's Immersion Program, Skills Fund is proud to offer students low, fixed-rate loans from $2,000 up to max tuition cost. In addition, students can receive up to $4,500 for cost of living during the program. For all programs, the loan is interest-only, which means that students make interest-only payments while in the program and for three months after completion. Full payments (interest + principal) kick in after the three-month job search grace period.
