Working adults, aged 24-30, who want to secure new-collar entry level jobs in technology.

Candidates with an Associate degree are highly encouraged to apply.

How much does your program cost?
You pay nothing upfront— you pay it forward. Once you’ve secured a job that pays 45K or more, you directly give back to the community by paying it forward for the next Climber to go through the program. It’s $150 a month for 4 years. The payments begin only when you’ve achieved your goal of getting a good job. That’s what we call holding ourselves accountable for results.
You become a business owner.
Yeah, you read that right! After completing the program, Climb Hire's graduates become part of a cooperative impact staffing agency. As our network grows and the company gets paid, you will share in the revenue too.
